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.

Every time I apply the brakes it makes a rapidly pulsating sensation like the ABS is engaging, even when I'm going at a slow speed or when I'm not making a rapid stop, have taken it in to huntington beach Mitsubishi 2/23/09 - they ordered rear brake shoes, 03/05/09 - replaced rear brake shoes and machined front rotors per tsb, 06/30/09 - advise turn drums, 10/20/09 - order front rotors (for which they made me pay, applied stop squeak, 10/22/09 - brake job front end, replaced pads and applied stop squeak (I paid for pads and stop squeak) 05/05/10 same problem they told me they're waiting on dpsm, and now they want me to come in Monday 7/24/10 for another brake job, even though I've said that is not taking care of the problem and how many times can the rotors be turned before I have to replace them again. I did not ask for the old parts. They have never addressed the ABS, even when I showed them a copy of recall notice on the ABS #06V038000 I bought this Raider pickup new in 2006 to last me for my old age. I can't afford to keep getting a new brake job every 6,000 miles.

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider that has electrical issues, sometimes the dash lights go out, all the gauges quit working, including speedometer and the radio cuts off.....sometimes daily, weekly, monthly. Even after taking to dealer numerous times. Rear brakes have been locking up and 'dragging' upon stopping sometimes, hasn't done it lately, I think the part may have finally broke. There is a recall on this item, but dealer says my truck was not in that series of serial numbers the defect was found in, although it does the same thing as the recalled trucks made the same year as mine. Now the rear brake drum is leaking brake fluid. Truck has 36, 000 on it, dealers have been no help whatsoever on any of the issues.

The contact owns a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider. While driving 40 mph on dry pavement, the brakes failed and the contact crashed into the preceding vehicle. The air bags failed to deploy. A police report was filed. The contact sustained minor upper back injuries. The VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 06V038000 (service brakes, hydraulic:antilock:control unit/module). The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 53,400.
