RepairPal Expert Overview
2013 Outlander Sport AWD vehicles are being recalled because the fuel gauge may read incorrectly, indicating more fuel than is actually in the tank.
As of this writing, Mitsubishi has not released an owner notification schedule for this recall. If are having problems with your fuel gauge or you don't receive notification and you believe you should have, please contact your local dealer. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-13-005.
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.
