Mitsubishi Galant Recall Information

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

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
