Recall Alert: Outlander Sport

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. is recalling certain Outlander Sport SUVs due to an issue with the vehicle’s panoramic sunroof assembly.
Mitsubishi Outlander recall


06/30/2013

Affected by this week’s recall are over 3,100 model year 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles built between August 26, 2010 and March 29, 2011. The vehicles in question may contain panoramic sunroofs that have been installed without a necessary primer. The lack of primer may create insufficient adhesion, which may cause the glass sunroof to detach from the vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Not surprisingly, the detached sunroof will create a road hazard for other drivers.

There have been no crashes or injuries reported in relation to the issue, said Mitsubishi. The recall affects Outlander Sport vehicles sold in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Mitsubishi has not provided the NHTSA with a notification schedule, but did state that it will inspect the panoramic glass to see if primer was used. If primer was not used, authorized dealers will reinstall the glass. In the meantime, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport drivers can call MMNA at 1-888-648-7820. The recall number is SR-13-007. Concerned owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). T
he NHTSA campaign number is 13V255000.
