Mitsubishi Outlander Recalls
Moisture can cause corrosion to build up on the wiper link mechanism, possibly causing the link to separate. This would cause the wipers to fail, resulting in reduced 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 front suspension lower control arms may corrode excessively in areas where there is a higher concentration of salt water exposure, such as from use of road salt. This could cause the arms to separate from the vehicle frame, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
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 headlights, tail lights or windshield wipers may stop working intermittently. This could cause reduced visibility by the driver, or cause the vehicle to not be seen by others.
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 brake light switch can fail, resulting in the brake lights not working when brakes are applied.
The power steering pressure hose may develop a leak from contacting the transmission housing. A leak may lead to loss of steering assistance.
The brake lights may stay on or not come on at all. Additionally, the shift lever could also be moved out of park without depressing the brake pedal.
2013 Outlander Sport AWD vehicles are being recalled because the fuel gauge may read incorrectly, indicating more fuel than is actually in the tank.
