Recalls

Recall Date: 09/12/2014
  • Summary: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Outlander vehicles manufactured December 15, 2006, to October 31, 2007, and April 16, 2008, to August 22, 2009. In the affected vehicles, the brake light switch may malfunction causing the brake lights to not illuminate during brake application.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 37,145
  • Consequence: Brake lights that are inoperative would not warn other drivers that the vehicle is stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy: Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake light switch with a new one, free of charge. The recall began in mid-October 2014. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-010. Note: This recall is an expansion of recall 08V-680 and does not include any vehicles that were previously recalled.

  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V564000
Recall Date: 06/25/2014
  • Summary: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2013 Outlander vehicles equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, Mitusbishi is recalling certain 2007-2012 Outlander vehicles that received replacement 6-speed automatic transmissions during servicing.

  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 203
  • Consequence: A power steering fluid leak could result in a loss of steering assistance, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy: Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the power steering pressure tube and return tube, free of charge. The recall began in August 2014. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-006.

Warranty

The Outlander comes with a bumper-to-bumper warranty good for five years or 60,000 miles. IntelliChoice has given the 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander an award for lowest repair costs in its class. Plus, its powertrain warranty beats Toyota and Honda with longer coverage: 10 years or 100,000 miles. Twenty-four-hour emergency roadside assistance with free towing to the nearest authorized Mitsubishi retailer for warranty-related repairs is available for five years and an unlimited number of miles.

Those interested in purchasing an earlier model year of the Outlander should note that Mitsubishi has recalled some 2007 and 2008 Outlanders due to a malfunction that might prevent the brake lights from turning on. A defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains, "The stop lamp switch of the subject vehicles may have been contaminated with silicone grease during vehicle assembly. If the contamination is sufficient, the contact points may become coated with silicone oxide and not allow the brake lamps to be operative," which "will not provide warning to following traffic and could result in a crash."
