Vehicle recalls are when a manufacturer requests that a model or specific trim should be returned or taken to a dealership for repairs because they have discovered defects in the vehicle that might put the driver or passengers at risk. Even though manufacturers, such as Mitsubishi, design trustworthy and safe vehicles, sometimes minor defects aren’t realized until after production. As soon as a glitch is detected, Mitsubishi sends out a recall because the safety of their customers matters before anything else. Read on with us at West Side Mitsubishi as we go over three Mitsubishi vehicle recalls. Contact our dealership if you have any further questions about recalls or your Mitsubishi vehicle.
2014 and 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander: there is a potential issue with a wiring connector, which can be affected and damaged by salt water and possibly cause a fire if there are flammable objects nearby. Dealers need to make sure to change the position of the wiring connector terminal so that it is not exposed to salt and swap the display harness.
2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: certain models have a problem with the software that controls the hydraulic unit of the braking system. This may cause the vehicle to breakdown. If this happens, it might also affect others systems in the vehicle, such as the Automatic Cruise Control, Forward Collision Mitigation and Active Stability Control systems. The failure of these components might increase the risk of an accident. Mitsubishi dealerships can remedy this situation by updating the software.
2018 Mitsubishi RVR: certain models present an issue with the electronic control unit, which monitors the Forward Collision Mitigation. The defect might cause the system to signal the driver to brake in certain situations when it is not needed. This problem could cause accidents if the driver brakes suddenly when not needed. Dealers can help fix this issue by updating the software.
