Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE IN 2009. SHORTLY AFTER MY PURCHASE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME AND I HAVE THE CODE READ, WHICH INDICATED THE ISSUE WAS THE EGR VALVE WHICH AFFECTS EMISSIONS. THE MECHANIC INITIALLY SOAKED THE VALVE WHICH WORKED FOR A WHILE, BUT THE CHECK ENGINE CAME ON AGAIN. SAME CODE, SAME PROBLEM, HOWEVER SOAKING WOULD NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM. MITSUBISHI NO LONGER MANUFACTURERS THE PART, SO HAD TO BE PURCHASED AFTER MARKET. TOTAL COST ALMOST $700.00. LESS THAN 1 YEAR LATER, SAME PROBLEM, CHECK LIGHT ENGINE ON, SAME CODE (P04 - I BELIEVE), ANOTHER $700 AND THIS TIME ANOTHER MECHANIC TOLD ME MITSUBISHI ISSUED A SERVICE ALERT IN 2010, WHICH I AM UNABLE TO FIND. THE SERVICE ALERT SUPPOSEDLY STATED THE ISSUE LIES IN THE PROGRAMMING, THAT NO ONE IS ABLE TO GET DONE. SO FOR THE 3RD TIME IN 6 YEARS I'M LOOKING TO REPLACE THE SAME PART, SAME ISSUE. 2ND ISSUE: REPLACEMENT KEYS HAVE TO PROGRAMMED BY THE DEALERSHIP. THE CHEAPEST I'VE FOUND IS $294 TO THE HIGHEST $399.00. RIDICULOUS!!! HAVE TO SPEND THE MONEY, BECAUSE IF FOR SOME REASON THE KEY I USE BREAKS CAR WILL NOT START. WHAT A RIP OFF. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED MY 2007 MITSUBISHI GALANT ON APRIL 28, 2007. AFTER ABOUT 7000 MILES, MY BRAKES STARTED PULSATING. I TOOK A DAY OFF WORK TO RETURN TO THE DEALER AND HAVE THEM FIX THIS PROBLEM. THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT DECIDED TO JUST RE-SURFACE THE ROTORS AND SEND ME ON MY WAY. ABOUT 7,000 MILES LATER IT HAPPENED AGAIN... SO BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP I WENT AGAIN AND ONCE AGAIN, THEY DECIDED TO RESURFACE MY ROTORS.. NOW OF COARSE AT 22,000 MILES ON MY VEHICLE, MY BREAK LIGHT HAS BEEN COMING ON WITH THE PULSATION BACK AND MY BRAKE PEDAL NOW CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARD THE FLOOR WHEN AT A COMPLETE STOP. SO BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP AGAIN ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT MY MASTER CYLINDER & BRAKE BOOSTER ARE LEAKING AND THEY WILL REPLACE THE FAULTY PARTS BUT THAT MY ROTORS ARE TOO LOW TO RESURFACE AGAIN AND THAT I WILL HAVE TO SPEND ABOUT $400.00 OUT OF MY OWN POCKET TO REPLACE THEM...THERE IS OBVIOUSLY A PROBLEM WITH THIS BRAKE SYSTEM AND I BELIEVE THE ROTORS SHOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED UNDER WARRANTY THE FIRST TIME OR EVEN THE SECOND TIME THE PULSATING HAPPENED. *TR
