Mitsubishi has issued a recall for 21,493 Mitsubishi Outlanders from the 2007 and 2008 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall is due to a malfunction in the LED brake lights’ lamp switch, which may cause the lights to not work while braking.
There’s a reason cops pull people over for broken taillights — they make sudden stops particularly dangerous and increase the chance a car will be rear-ended. Dealers will remedy the problem by simply replacing the faulty lamp.
For more information, owners can contact their local Mitsubishi dealer, or the national hotline at 888-MITSU2009. They can also contact the NHTSA hotline at 888-327-4236
