59,000 Mitsubishi SUVs: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 59,000 model-year 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUVs equipped with a forward collision mitigation; and model-year 2018 Outlander plug-in-hybrid and Eclipse Cross SUVs, and model-year 2017-18 Outlander SUVs equipped with an adaptive cruise control and/or an electric parking brake system

The Problem: The software for the hydraulic unit’s electronic control unit may be incorrect, possibly preventing the intervention of a safety system (such as automatic emergency braking, antilock braking, electronic stability control or the brake auto hold function) when any of these systems is in use, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the hydraulic unit ECU software for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mitsubishi will begin notifying owners on Oct. 16. 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.
