Recall Number: 14V366000

Recall Date: 06/25/2014

Component: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS

Problem 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. The transmissions in these vehicles have insufficient clearance between the power steering pressure tube and the converter housing of the automatic transmission. As a result of the contact, the power steering pressure tube may develop a hole and leak power steering fluid.

Consequence: A power steering fluid leak could result in a loss of steering assistance, increasing the risk of a crash.

What Owners Should Do: 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.

Problem Summary: MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. (MITSUBISHI) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013 OUTLANDER SPORT VEHICLES MANUFACTURED JULY 20, 2012, THROUGH MAY 29, 2013 AND EQUIPPED WITH LEATHER SEATS. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, THE DRIVER SIDE SEAT MOUNTED AIR BAG WIRING MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY ROUTED DURING THE LEATHER SEAT COVER INSTALLATION PROCESS.

Consequence: IF THE WIRING IS ROUTED INCORRECTLY, USING THE SEAT HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT MAY DAMAGE THE WIRING RESULTING IN ILLUMINATION OF THE AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT. SUBSEQUENTLY, IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH NECESSITATING AIR BAG DEPLOYMENT, THE DRIVER SIDE SEAT MOUNTED AIR BAG MAY NOT DEPLOY, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

What Owners Should Do: MITSUBISHI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE WIRING OF THE DRIVER SIDE SEAT MOUNTED AIR BAG AND RE-ROUTE THE WIRE IF NECESSARY, FREE OF CHARGE. IF THE WIRE IS DAMAGED, THE SEAT MOUNTED AIRBAG WILL BE REPLACED, FREE OF CHAGRE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT 1-800-222-0037.

Problem Summary: MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. (MMNA) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013 OUTLANDER SPORT VEHICLES MANUFACTURED JANUARY 17, 2013, THROUGH JANUARY 25, 2013. THE STABILIZER LINK BRACKET ON THE LEFT FRONT STRUT WAS IMPROPERLY WELDED. AS A RESULT, THE LINK MAY DETACH AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE TIRE AND/OR BRAKE HOSE.

Consequence: IF THE STABILIZER LINK BRACKET DAMAGES THE TIRE AND/OR BRAKE LINE, THE DRIVER MAY HAVE MORE DIFFICULTY CONTROLLING THE STEERING OF THE VEHICLE, OR THE VEHICLE MAY REQUIRE A LONGER STOPPING DISTANCE TO COME TO A COMPLETE AND CONTROLLED STOP.
