Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Recalls
The lift gate supports may corrode due to a lack of anti-corrosion treatment, which could cause the supports to fail and the lift gate to fall suddenly. This would increase risk of injury.
The wiper motor may get water inside of it, causing internal corrosion. The wiper motor may stop working as a result, reducing visibility for the driver which can cause an accident.
The engine and transmission may hesitate and fail to accelerate when commanded. This can result in risk of an accident.
The clamps that secure a transmission fluid hose may become loose, resulting in a fluid leak from the continuously variable transmission (CVT). This could result in a fire hazard with transmission fluid contacting hot surfaces, as well as result in the vehicle becoming inoperable.
The vehicle certification label may have an incorrect vehicle identification numbers (VIN) printed on it.
The blower fan for the heating and air conditioning system may stop working. This may cause windows to fog up and reduce visibility, causing a safety risk.
The front passenger seat belt end may loosen and separate, causing increased risk of injury to the occupant in an accident.
The brake pedal may not return to the top position for braking due to a faulty brake booster. This can affect proper safe brake operation.
The pulleys that drive the alternator, cooling fan and power steering pump as mounted on the engine may wear, causing the belt to come off. This can make steering more difficult and discharge the battery, resulting in the engine stalling.
The wiring for the drivers side seat mounted air bag may not be positioned properly. This may result in the air bag warning light coming on when adjusting the seat and a failure of the air bag to function as designed in the event of a collision.
