Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Tailgate is rusting near the lift gate handle and also both sides of the upper part near the glass where the tailgate meets the spoiler. I have been in contact with Mitsubishi they will not honor any rust issues unless I am able to poke a hole through the affected areas. Meanwhile the car is clearly rusting and the plastic handle which is around the rusted area on the tailgate is coming loose due to the rust. There have been other complaints online of other people with the exact same rust issue.
