 Horn spontaneously sounded and would not go off while car was parked in cold. the fuse had to be removed. now that the temperature is warmer the horn appears to be back to normal with the fuse back in. the horn switch is contained in an assembly that includes the airbag and is sold only as a unit with a parts price of over $600, plus labor to install. an investigation on the internet shows that a number of other 2001 mitsubishi montero owners have reported similar defects in the horn. it is unreasonable for mitsubishi to charge $1,000 to fix their defect in the horn switch. this is a major safety defect.

 The check engine light came on so i took the car to the dealer right away. i was told that there was an 89$ charge to diagnose the problem. later that day i was called to be told that it would now cost me 192$ because they had to download information to the computor. this definatly sounds like a manufacturing problem and they are charging there customers to fix it. i will never buy another mitsubishi again. i informed the dealership how i felt but they could care less so be it but i will tell everyone i know how i was treated and let them make there own decision. *ak
