THE WHEEL COVERS ON MY CAR FLEW OFF RANDOM TIMES GOING DOWN THE INTERSTATE. TIRES WERE IN GOOD CONDITION BUT IT SEEMS THAT ANYTIME I WENT OVER 70MPH I WOULD LOSE A HUBCAP. THIS COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT OR CAR DAMAGE. HEADLINER IN BACK WINDOW HAS STARTED TO COME DOWN BLOCKING REAR VIEW. THE DASHBOARD PASSENGER SIDE HAS COME LOOSE FROM BEHIND GLOVE BOX. THIS HOUSES THE AIR BAG COULD PREVENT PROPER DEPLOYMENT OR DANGEROUS DEPLOYMENT IF ITS EVER NEEDED. LASTLY, THE CLEAR COAT ON THE TRUNK HAS CHIPPED AWAY. I KNOW AT ONE POINT THERE WAS A RECALL ON (BLACK) CARS FOR THIS SPECIFIC REASON. EXCEPT MY CAR IS GOLD. :( ON THE POSITIVE NOTE THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION HAVE BEEN GREAT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

LAMP SOCKETS FOR BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE BRAKE LIGHTS BURNT OUT AT 5 YEARS, 2 MONTHS WITH LESS THAN 50,000 MILES. IF ONE SIDE WENT OUT I'D CALL IT A MANUFACTURER DEFECT. BOTH SIDES,...SEEMS MORE LIKE AN ENGINEERING PROBLEM. ONLY THE CONTACT FOR THE BRAKE SIDE OF THE 2057 LAMP WAS MELTED AND RECESSED. THE TAIL LAMP SIDE OF THE SOCKET IS STILL CLEAN. PUT IN A GM REPLACEMENT SOCKET WHICH LOOKS BETTER MADE THAN THE OEM. JUST GLAD THE WIFE DID NOT GET REAR-ENDED. HUNG ONTO THE OLD SOCKETS JUST IN CASE SOMEONE MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN LOOKING AT THEM. LOTS OF TAILGATERS IN MY STATE, SO BRAKE LIGHTS ARE IMPORTANT HERE.

Consumer Location: LOUISVILLE, KY
VIN: 4A3AB36F86E****

Summary of Complaint

2006 MITSUBISHI GALANT BOTH KEYS USED TO START MY VEHICLE HAVE SHATTERED INTO SEVERAL PIECES WHILE ATTEMPTING TO START THE VEHICLE. THE FIRST KEY BROKE AROUND JULY 14 2007 AND THE SECOND KEY BREAKING MORE RECENT ON 25 NOVEMBER2010. WHEN THE KEYS BREAK THEY GO INTO SEVERAL SMALLER PIECES AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ALL THE PARTS AND PIECES CREATING A CHOKING HAZARD FOR BOTH CHILDREN AND ANIMALS. IF NEEDED I CAN PROVIDE PICTURES. WHEN THIS SECOND KEY BROKE INTO 7 PIECES I WAS NOT ABLE TO LOCATE ALL PIECES. APPROXIMATELY 24-48 HOURS LATER I OBSERVED, BY WAY OF PASSING THE PLASTIC PIECE, THAT MY YOUNG PUPPY HAD LOCATED THE PIECE AND SWALLOWED THE PLASTIC. I FEAR THAT IF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN MY CHILD THAT FOUND THE PIECE THAT I WOULD HAVE A LARGER PROBLEM TO TAKE CARE OF. I CONTACTED MITSUBISHI ABOUT THIS PROBLEM AND THEY STATED THAT SINCE MY VEHICLE WAS NOT STILL UNDER WARRANTY THAT THEY WOULD NOT HELP ME AND THAT I NEEDED TO PURCHASE A NEW KEY THAT WAS MADE OF BETTER MATERIAL. THE COST TO REPLACE ONE KEY IS $200. MITSUBISHI ADVISED THAT THEY WERE NOT RESPONSIBLE TO FIX THE PROBLEM, EVEN IF IT DID CAUSE A CHOKING HAZARD, SINCE MY VEHICLE IS NOT UNDER WARRANTY AND THAT IF MY CHILD OR PUPPY CHOKED ON THE PIECE THAT I SHOULD HAVE WATCHED THEM BETTER THAN WHAT I DID. *TR
