Mitsubishi Lancer Problems

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.

Erratic HVAC blower motor operation may be caused by a failed blower motor and/or blower motor resistor. Our technicians tell us that if the blower motor resistor fails the blower motor should be checked. If the blower motor fails its functional test in should be replaced along with the failed blower motor resistor.

It is not uncommon for the clear coat paint to develop white spots and begin peeling. In most cases Mitsubishi will not cover out of warranty repairs for this condition.

Mitsubishi Lancer Recalls

Where heavy salt is used on the roads, the mixture of melted snow and salt may stick to the front impact sensors. Over time, this causes corrosion of the sensor, and could cause a possible delay in the deployment of the air bags in the event of a collision. The delay in deployment could cause an injury. Dealers will install new front air bag sensors with improved corrosion resistance. The recall began on November 27, 2009.

A check valve in the power brake booster may stick and cause the brake pedal to be harder than usual, usually after the vehicle has been shut off and then restarted. This may lead to longer stopping distances, which may create a safety hazard. Dealers will replace the brake booster check valve. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-09-002. This recall began in April, 2009.

On certain vehicles the turbo charger coolant hose was incorrectly manufactured and may allow leakage of coolant. Coolant may run onto hot exhaust manifold and start on fire. Dealers will replace the affected hose free of charge.

The Mitsubishi recall # is SR-05-0004

I bought this car in 2002 and I still love my car. Just recently am I having trouble with the sound of the car. Once I go over 60 mph, it sounds really rough on the engine. Will be bringing it in soon.

I have had my 09 lancer sportback for nearly % years and it has been a wonderful car. Mitu really needs to update the interior on the lancers but it is quite functional. One big beef I have is with the brakes and suspension. My front rotors had to be replaced with the fist set of brake pads!?!?!? Seriously. Not due to grinding out the pads to metal. I took it in as soon as the wear indicator st...
