NEWS:   Mitsubishi is recalling certain 2012 Outlander Sport vehicles

JANUARY 2012 -- Mitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2012 Outlander Sport vehicles, manufactured from November 9, 2011, through December 16, 2011. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The turn signal levers in the vehicle were not manufactured correctly, which could result in the auto-cancel function of the turn signal becoming inoperative. The turn signal may continue to signal an intended directional change after a point when the auto-cancel function, if operating properly, would have terminated the signal. A following or oncoming driver may receive inaccurate indications of the vehicle operator's intended maneuvers, thereby increasing the risk of a crash between vehicles due to improper vehicle signaling. Dealers will inspect the turn signal lever and replace it with a new one free of charge. No vehicles have been retailed to customers with this potential condition, no recall bulletin or owner letters will be prepared.  12V-001

MORE RECALL INFO: 


OCTOBER 2010 -- Mitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2006-2008 Endeavor with manual air conditioning. Due to an incorrect heater (HVAC) controller signal, the air flow from the air vents may randomly change direction and/or the temperature may briefly cycle between hot and cold. This condition could affect defroster performance, resulting in poor windshield visibility and potentially cause a crash. Dealers will inspect for damage and if necessary repair the mode door shaft free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during December 2010.  10V-514

FEBRUARY 2010 -- Mitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2004 Endeavor vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C. Cold states include North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Utah. Adjoining states include Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina. In severe corrosive environments where road salts are frequently used in winter vehicles may be exposed to road debris (mud) mixed with road salt. This material can become trapped between a reinforcing bracket and the fuel filler pipe, potentially causing corrosion. Over time, corrosion could create a leak in the fuel filler pipe that could result in a fuel leakage when fueling the vehicle. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel filler pipe with a new improved part free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before July 5, 2010.  10V-065

FEBRUARY 2010 -- Mitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2010 Galant vehicles. The automatic transmission oil cooler pipe assembly on some vehicles may have insufficient plating to prevent corrosion, if the pipe should develop a hole due to corrosion, automatic transmission fluid leakage may occur. ATF in the presence of an ignition source may result in a potential fire hazard. Dealers will have the aft oil cooler pipe assembly inspected. If insufficient plating is found during inspection, the dealer will replace the aft oil cooler pipe assembly with new parts containing appropriate anti-corrosion plating. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during March 2010.  10V-066

NOVEMBER 2009 -- Mitsubishi is recalling model year 2008-2009 Lancer and Lancer Evolution vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and District Of Columbia. In areas where heavy road salt is used in the winter, a long term exposure to a mixture of melted snow with salt thrown up by the other vehicles on the road may cause a water-salt mixture to adhere to the front impact sensors. This coating over time may cause corrosion or the sensor. In the event of a vehicle crash of the type that would deploy the airbags this type of short-circuit may cause a delay in the deployment of the airbags which could result in driver or passenger injury. Dealers will install new front airbag sensors that have improved corrosion resistance. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on November 27, 2009. 09V-435

SEPTEMBER 2009 -- Mitsubishi is recalling model year 2008-2009 Lancer Evolution, Ralliart, and Sportback Ralliart vehicles equipped with turbocharged engines. The manner in which the fuel return pipe is attached to the engine, in combination with frequent vehicle operation at certain engine revolutions, may result in a resonance that, if continued over time, may cause a stress crack to develop at the fixed portion of the fuel pipe. If this stress crack develops, fuel leakage may occur. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. The fuel return pipe will be replaced with a new part and two additional attachment brackets will be installed to better control fuel pipe vibration. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during October 2009. Mitsubishi's recall campaign number is SR-09-004. 09V-349

SEPTEMBER 2009 -- Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2010 Endeavor model vehicles manufactured between May 26 and July 28, 2009. The retainer bracket used for the seatmounted side airbag frames on both the driver and front passenger seats may not have been properly welded. If this condition exists, the front seat-mounted airbags may not deploy correctly in a side impact crash, possibly resulting in injury to the seat occupant. MMNA will notify owners and dealers will inspect the weld condition of the side airbag retainer bracket on the front passenger seats. If the weld is insufficient, the dealer will replace the seatback assembly free of charge. The safety recall began on September 30, 2009. Owners may contact Mitsubishi Customer Relations Department at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi'e recall campaign number is SR-09-003.   09V-361

MARCH 2009 --   Mitsubishi is recalling 39,711 MY 2008-2009 Outlander and Lancer vehicles. Incorrect material composition of the brake booster check valve may cause the check valve to stick closed when the engine is shut off. When the vehicle is re-started and put into motion, under certain driving conditions (very slow vehicle maneuvers), there may be insufficient initial braking assist. This may temporarily increase the stopping distance of the vehicle and therefore increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the brake booster check valve free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.    09V-077

DECEMBER 2008 -- Mitsubishi is recalling 21,493 MY 2007-2008 Outlander vehicles equipped with LED type stop lamps and distributed in the United States and Puerto Rico. The brake lamp switch may malfunction and cause the stop lamps to not illuminate during brake application. The failure of the brake lamps to illuminate when the brakes are applied will not provide warning to following traffic and could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the stop lamp switch. The recall is expected to begin during February 2009.  08V680

SEPTEMBER 2008 -- Mitsubishi is recalling 45,988 MY 2005-2007 Endeavor, Galant, Eclipse Coupe, and MY 2007 Eclipse Spyder vehicles. The bracket that is the attachment point for the left rear fuel tank mounting strap may have been improperly formed during a metal stamping process. The process may have caused the metal to have a split in the area where the bolt that holds one of the two fuel tank straps to the underside of the vehicle is located. In the event the fuel tank is full and the vehicle is subject to a severe collision, the bracket may break and allow the fuel tank to drop down, possibly causing a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect to see if the left rear fuel tank strap mounting bracket has splitting beyond a specific limit. Vehicles with moderate to severe splitting will be repaired using a reinforcement cap, a special structural adhesive, and a rivet to reinforce the fuel tank mounting bracket. The recall is expected to begin during October 2008.  08V454

JUNE 2008 -- Mitsubishi is recalling 73,000 MY 2004-2005 Galant passenger vehicles. During vehicle use, the ignition key interlock cable (which is a component of the interlock system) may allow the interlocking cam to fall forward and allow the ignition key to be removed from the ignition switch when the gearshift mechanism is not in the park position. If the driver does not shift to park before removing the key and fails to engage the parking brake, the vehicle could roll and a crash could occur. Dealers will inspect and correct these vehicles for the reported condition. The recall is expected to begin during August 2008. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820. This recall was the subject of a Preliminary Evaluation, PE08-006, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation.  08V276

FEBRUARY 2008 -- Mitsubishi is recalling 5,400 MY 2007-2008 Outlander passenger vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. For vehicles without an electric power seat, the floor harness connector for the power seat is placed directly on the floorboard underneath the carpeting (vehicles with power seats already have the harness elevated). If a vehicle occupant enters the vehicle with a sufficient amount of snow on their feet containing road salt, it is possible for the melted snow mixture to soak the carpet and allow the salt-water solution to come into contact with the unused power seat harness connector. The connector terminal may corrode and allow current to flow, resulting in the gradual heating and melting of the connector and may result in a fire. Dealers will relocate the floor harness beneath both the passenger and driver seats to above the carpet and away from the bottom of the floorboard to prevent contact with any future melt solution. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037. 08V-094

FEBRUARY 2008 -- Mitsubishi is recalling 7,340 MY 2006-2007 Endeavor vehicles. The right side lower seat belt anchor may separate during a severe vehicle crash. A severe crash could allow the seat belt to not properly restrain the passenger and potentially result in injury or death. Dealers will replace the front passenger side seat belt and bracket assembly. The recall is expected to begin during February 2008. 08V-022


NEWS:   Mitsubishi Recalls 120,000 Endeavors

ConsumerAffairs.com -- April 3, 2008 -- The National Highway Traffic Administration reports that Mitsubishi is recalling 120,00 Endeavors from the 2004 to 2006 model years because the ignition interlock system may fail.

“The ignition key interlock cable may allow the interlocking cam to fall forward and allow the ignition key to be removed from the ignition switch when the gearshift mechanism is not in the park position,” NHTSA warns on its Web site.

Should a driver of one of the recalled Mitsubishi Endeavors fail to shift the transmission into park before removing the key and at the same time fails to engaged the parking brake, “the vehicle could roll and a crash could occur,” the safety warning concludes.

The Japanese automaker has not provided NHTSA with a plan to remedy the ignition interlock problem nor has the company established a notification schedule. Mitsubishi dealers, however, will inspect and correct the problem when they receive repair details from Mitsubishi.
