RECALL Subject : Water Intrusion may cause Wiper Link Corrosion

Report Receipt Date: OCT 31, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V791000
Component(s): VISIBILITY
Potential Number of Units Affected: 100,082


Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 Outlander vehicles manufactured September 8, 2006, to March 29, 2013. In the affected vehicles, water may enter between the hood and windshield and cause the front wiper link ball joint to corrode, possibly resulting in the wiper link separating and the wipers becoming inoperative.
CONSEQUENCE:
Loss of wiper function can reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rubber boot on the ball joint to prevent water intrusion. Additionally, they will inspect the wiper motor crank arm for excessive play, replacing it as necessary. These repairs will be done free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-16-009.
