RepairPal Expert Overview on March 23, 2010

There is a cooler for the transmission that transmission fluid travels through. This cooler keeps the transmission fluid from overheating. There are tubes that carry the fluid from the transmission to this cooler. These tubes were manufactured without enough corrosion protection. If the tubes corrode, fluid may leak. Leaking transmission fluid may pose a fire hazard.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any transmission fluid leaks are detected. Please contact your Mitsubishi dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
