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.
