Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Recall 13V255000

Panoramic Glass Roof May Detach

Recall Details

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.

Our Quick Take

The panoramic glass roof can detach and come off the vehicle while driving.

What Should You Do?

Mitsubishi will notify owners of the affected vehicles but as of this writing a notification schedule has not been released. If you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-13-007.
