RepairPal Expert Overview on September 12, 2014

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.

Mitsubishi notified owners of affected vehicles starting in October 2014. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-14-009.
