Mitsubishi Recall History

Mitsubishi has had a number of its cars and SUV recalled in recent years, including issues with airbags, corrosion of parts and sunroof assembly. Among the models affected are the Mirage, Outlander, Outlander Sport and Lancer.

In 2018, Mitsubishi recalled just over 83,500 2014-2018 Mirage compact cars due to an internal acceleration sensor that, under certain conditions, may disable the airbags. NHTSA reports that as of April 2018, just under half or 42.2 percent of recalled cars have been fixed.

A broader recall was issued for 141,053 cars and SUVs including the 2008-2012 Outlander, Outlander Sport, Lancer Sportback and Lancer. A defective belt tensioner may fail, causing the belt to detach. If this occurs, there is a risk the battery will discharge resulting in a stall. This 2018 recall supersedes an early recall for the same problem issued in 2014.

Mitsubishi also recalled 170,354 2013-2016 Outlander and Outlander Sport SUVs for an issue related to water penetrating the rear brake calipers. Should this occur, the parking brake actuator shafts may corrode and bind, interfering with the parking brake’s ability to fully engage and disengage. As of April 2018, the completion rate was less than 1 percent.

Just over 56,640 2007-2010 Lancer, Lancer Evolution, Lancer Sportback and Outlander vehicles were recently recalled for an issue where the sunroof glass on cars so equipped may detach from the sunroof assembly. As this recall was just recently announced, only 4 percent of repairs have been completed.

In regards to the Takata airbag recall, Mitsubishi has issued notices for the 2012 and 2014 i-MiEV, 2004-2007 Lancer, Lancer Sportback and Lancer Evolution as well as the 2006-2009 Raider truck. Multiple First-Class mailings went out throughout 2016 and 2017 in an effort to reach owners, however as of January 2018, only 4 percent of the 2004-2006 Lancer passenger side airbags have been fixed.
