Recall Alert : Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

December 2, 2016 NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V867000
Lift Gate Supports may Fail and Lift Gate may Fall


If the outer tube corrodes, there may be a rapid loss of the gas used to provide lift assistance, causing the lift gate to fall suddenly, increasing the risk of injury.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V867000

Manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Components STRUCTURE

Potential Number of Units Affected 50,228

Summary


Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured August 26, 2010, to June 1, 2012, and 2016 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured January 11, 2016, to July 8, 2016. The lift gate support outer tube on the affected vehicles may have insufficient anti-corrosion treatment that can allow the outer tube to corrode due to salt and water penetration.
