Mitsubishi Problems

Sticky Temperature Knob

The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.

Loose or Broken Crankshaft Pulley Bolt

The crankshaft pulley bolt may become loose or break causing loss of power steering operation and other related engine accessories. Some of these vehicles may be involved in a recall for this issue. Our technicians tell us that an updated bolt may be available. Replacing as necessary and properly torquing the crankshaft bolt will commonly correct this issue.

Wiring Corrodes And Delays Frontal Air Bag Deployment In An Accident

Road salt and snow entering the vehicle may corrode wiring under the driver's foot rest area, which could result in delayed frontal air bag deployment in an accident. Dealers will inspect the affected connectors and replace any found to be corroded. Dealers will also install a waterproof sheet over the connectors to prevent future corrosion. These repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The frontal air bags may delay deployment and the side curtain air bags may not deploy at all due to a fault of the impact sensors. Dealers will replace the affected impact sensors free of charge to resolve the concern.

I have 264K miles on mine. I had my first breakdown, on the road last summer. Water Pump. Amazing vehicle. Smooth ride, no rattle or shakes yet. 6 sets of tires, 2 radiator fans (squirrels chewed 1st replacement) The only issue is the heater switch and it just broke off a month ago. Need to fix that this spring. It's been the best car ever.
