A rattle noise may be noted from the clutch area while the car is at idle. If the noise changes or goes away when the clutch is depressed the fault is commonly with the clutch disc springs. It has be reported that a revised clutch disc is available from Mitsubishi to correct this concern.

 

One or both side airbag modules may fail resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. Side airbag modules determined to be faulty should be replaced.

The brake pedal may pulsate when the brakes are applied. This is most commonly caused by the front brake rotors warping. Resurfacing the affected rotors may correct the problem for the short term but replacement would generally considered a longer term solution.

The drivers power seat may not adjust properly or develop a noise issue when adjusting. This is commonly caused by a damaged drive cable which will require replacement.

Corrosion may develop on the fuel filler door requiring replacement of the damaged door.

Vehicles with convertible tops may develop a fluttering type noise with the windows partially opened. This is commonly caused by the fabric top becoming loose at one of the metal bow supports. Our technicians tell us that the headliner must be lowered to access the retaining strips to tighten them.
