This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
When the clutch pedal is depressed, the clutch master cylinder provides the hydraulic pressure to disengage the clutch. Certain vehicles equipped with a manual transmission are being recalled because the clutch master cylinder can fail without warning. If this were to occur, the ability to shift the transmission would be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the clutch master cylinder on affected vehicles to correct this concern.
The left front strut may have a stabilizer link bracket that was not properly welded in place. As a result the link may detach and cause damage to the tire and/or brake hose. A damaged tire could result in reduced steering ability. A damaged brake hose could result in increased stopping distance. Dealers will inspect and replace the left front strut if necessary to correct this concern.
2011 Outlander Sport models are being recalled because the panoramic glass roof may not have been properly installed during vehicle assembly. If a primer was not used before the adhesive was applied, the glass may not be as secure as it should be. As a result the glass could detach from the vehicle while driving, creating a road hazard for other vehicles. Dealers will inspect the panoramic glass and re-install as necessary.
2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles are being recalled because the brake lamps may illuminate continuously, or not at all. The shift lever could also be moved out of Park (P) without depressing the brake pedal. If the brake lights do not come on when braking this could increase the risk of a rear end collision. If the shift lever is moved out of park when the brake pedal is not depressed, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly. Dealers will make sure the brake light switch is properly installed to correct this concern.
Mitsubishi is recalling the 2013 Outlander Sport AWD because they may have been assembled without a fuel sending unit wire harness for the secondary sending unit. This can result in a false fuel tank level reading. If the fuel gauge were to indicate fuel available while driving when the tank is empty, the engine would stall increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install the proper fuel sending unit wire harness to correct this concern.
All modern braking systems use some type power assist. These vehicles use a vacuum pump to provide power assist to the braking system and some of these vacuum pumps can fail prematurely, causing reduced braking performance. This can result in increased stopping distances and therefore increasing the risk of a crash. Mitsubishi dealers will replace the effected vacuum pumps to correct this concern.
261 vehicles are being recalled due to incompatibility between air bag sensors and the self-diagnostic software. This condition may deactivate the frontal and side airbag system. Should this occur, the SRS warning lamp would illuminate to alert the driver.
The side and curtain air bags may not deploy in a crash for which those air bags were intended to deploy, increasing the risk of personal injury to the vehicle occupants.
Dealers will replace the incompatible air bag sensors to correct this concern. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-12-003.
The turn signal lever on certain vehicles was manufactured incorrectly, which could lead to failure of the auto-cancel function of the turn signal. If the turn signal were to continue to flash when it should have canceled, other drivers may receive inaccurate indications of the driver's intended maneuvers, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the turn signal lever to correct this concern.
