NEWS: Mitsubishi is recalling certain 2013 Outlander Sport vehicles

Report Receipt Date: JUL 08, 2013

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V300000

JUNE 2013 – Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2013 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured January 17, 2013, through January 25, 2013. The stabilizer link bracket on the left front strut was improperly welded. As a result, the link may detach and cause damage to the tire and/or brake hose.

If the stabilizer link bracket damages the tire and/or brake line, the driver may have more difficulty controlling the steering of the vehicle, or the vehicle may require a longer stopping distance to come to a complete and controlled stop. Either condition increases the risk of a crash. MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the front left strut assembly free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during the week of july 29, 2013.

MMNA’s recall number is SR-13-008. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

JULY 2013 – Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2011 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured August 26, 2010, through March 29, 2011.

MMNA will notify owners and dealers will inspect the panoramic glass to see if primer was installed. If primer is not present, the glass will be reinstalled. The recall began on July 8, 2013.

MMNA’s recall number is SR-13-007. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,539

APRIL 2013 — Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2013 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured June 11, 2012, through September 11, 2012. These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment, and FMVSS number 114, Theft Protection. The brake stop lamps may illuminate continuously or intermittently.

The shift lever could also be moved out of Park without depressing the brake pedal. If the brake lamps do not illuminate properly other vehicles may not know when the vehicle is stopping. This could increase the risk of a crash. If the shift lever is moved from park without using the brake, the vehicle may roll causing personal injury.

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will correct the installation of the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Mitsubishi’s campaign recall number is SR-13-004.

NEWS: Mitsubishi is recalling certain 2013 Outlander Sport AWD vehicles

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V112000

Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

Potential Number of Units Affected: 3,724

APRIL 2013 — Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2013 Outlander Sport AWD vehicles manufactured June 11, 2012, through December 11, 2012. These vehicles may have been built without a fuel sending unit harness for the sub-sending unit. This may result in a false fuel tank level reading. The vehicle operator may believe they have fuel when the tank is actually empty. This could cause the engine to stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will install the proper fuel sending harness, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Mitsubishi’s campaign recall number is SR-13-005.Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NEWS: Mitsubishi is recalling certain 2012 Outlander Sport vehicles

JANUARY 2012 — Mitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2012 Outlander Sport vehicles, manufactured from November 9, 2011, through December 16, 2011. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment. The turn signal levers in the vehicle were not manufactured correctly, which could result in the auto-cancel function of the turn signal becoming inoperative.

The turn signal may continue to signal an intended directional change after a point when the auto-cancel function, if operating properly, would have terminated the signal. A following or oncoming driver may receive inaccurate indications of the vehicle operator’s intended maneuvers, thereby increasing the risk of a crash between vehicles due to improper vehicle signaling. Dealers will inspect the turn signal lever and replace it with a new one free of charge.

No vehicles have been retailed to customers with this potential condition, no recall bulletin or owner letters will be prepared. 12V-001

MORE RECALL INFO:

MARCH 2009 — Mitsubishi is recalling 39,711 MY 2008-2009 Outlander and Lancer vehicles. Incorrect material composition of the brake booster check valve may cause the check valve to stick closed when the engine is shut off. When the vehicle is re-started and put into motion, under certain driving conditions (very slow vehicle maneuvers), there may be insufficient initial braking assist.

This may temporarily increase the stopping distance of the vehicle and therefore increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake booster check valve free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009.

Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037. 09V-077

DECEMBER 2008 — Mitsubishi is recalling 21,493 MY 2007-2008 Outlander vehicles equipped with LED type stop lamps and distributed in the United States and Puerto Rico. The brake lamp switch may malfunction and cause the stop lamps to not illuminate during brake application. The failure of the brake lamps to illuminate when the brakes are applied will not provide warning to following traffic and could result in a crash.

Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch. The recall is expected to begin during February 2009. 08V680

FEBRUARY 2008 — Mitsubishi is recalling 5,400 MY 2007-2008 Outlander passenger vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. For vehicles without an electric power seat, the floor harness connector for the power seat is placed directly on the floorboard underneath the carpeting (vehicles with power seats already have the harness elevated).

If a vehicle occupant enters the vehicle with a sufficient amount of snow on their feet containing road salt, it is possible for the melted snow mixture to soak the carpet and allow the salt-water solution to come into contact with the unused power seat harness connector. The connector terminal may corrode and allow current to flow, resulting in the gradual heating and melting of the connector and may result in a fire.

Dealers will relocate the floor harness beneath both the passenger and driver seats to above the carpet and away from the bottom of the floorboard to prevent contact with any future melt solution. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. 08V094
