Vehicles Affected: Approximately 158,600 model-year 2011-16 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUVs

The Problem: Water may enter between the hood and windshield, causing corrosion of the front wiper-link ball joint that could lead to separation of the wiper link and the wipers becoming inoperative. Inoperative wipers could reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. 

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the wiper link rod and the wiper motor crank arm, as necessary, for free.   

What Owners Should Do: Mitsubishi will begin notifying owners April 10. Owners can call the automaker at 888-648-7820, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
