Summary of Complaint

I RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE IN JULY THAT THE BRAKES COULD FAIL IF THE ABS IS ACTIVATED. MITSUBISHI REFERRED ME TO A DEALER (THE ONLY DEALER IN NEVADA). THE DEALER SAID THEY CAN'T MAKE ANY REPAIRS, BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE PARTS TO FIX THE CAR. SO, I CALLED MITSUBISHI, AND THEY SAID THERE IS NO REPAIR SOLUTION AVAILABLE. SO I REQUESTED A LOANER, SINCE MY CAR IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE. THEY TOLD ME THEY DON'T SUPPLY LOANERS, AND THAT I SHOULD CONTINUE DRIVING THE CAR UNLESS THE BRAKES FAIL. UNBELIEVABLE! TWO MONTHS LATER, THE BRAKES FAILED AFTER ABS SYSTEM WAS ACTIVATED IN THE RAIN AND I SLID THROUGH AN INTERSECTION ALMOST CAUSING A MAJOR ACCIDENT ON A CITY STREET AT 45MPH AFTER TRYING TO STOP USING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE. THE DEALER WANTS TO CHARGE ME FOR THE TOW (BECAUSE THE VEHICLE IS DISABLED) AND FOR STORAGE (BECAUSE THEY ALLEGEDLY DON'T HAVE PARTS TO DO THE REPAIR). MITSUBISHI OFFERED NO HELP WHATSOEVER. THEY REFERRED ME BACK TO THE DEALER, AND THE DEALER CLAIMS THEY CAN'T MAKE THE REPAIR. I TOLD MITSUBISHI ABOUT MY PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE, AND THEY WERE NO HELP AT ALL. THEY SAID THEY AREN'T AUTHORIZED TO MAKE ANY DECISIONS, AND THAT ONLY THE DEALERSHIP CAN OPT TO TOW/REPAIR THE CAR OR SUPPLY A LOANER. SO NOW MY CAR SITS IN THE PARKING LOT, BROKEN DOWN WITH NO BRAKES, WITH A RECALL NOTICE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. THEY WANT ME TO TOW THE CAR 45 MILES OUT OF MY OWN POCKET, OR DRIVE THE CAR WITH NO BRAKES. THEN THEY EXPECT ME TO PAY FOR THE LOANER. AND THEY EXPECT ME TO PAY FOR STORAGE WHILE THE CAR SITS ON THEIR LOT WAITING FOR MITSUBISHI TO COME UP WITH A REPAIR SOLUTION. UNBELIEVABLE.

Summary of Complaint

THE BRAKES LOST PRESSURE AND IT TOOK A LONG TIME FOR THE CAR TO COME TO A COMPLETE STOP. AS I WAS MOVING VERY SLOWLY AT THE TIME AND THERE WAS NO-ONE IN FRONT OF ME, NOTHING AWFUL HAPPENED. AFTER THAT, THE BRAKES WERE FINE UNTIL IT HAPPENED AGAIN A FEW MONTHS LATER. BECAUSE IT WAS SO QUICK AND SPORADIC I THOUGHT THAT PERHAPS I WAS IMAGINING IT! THEN IN 2011 IT HAPPENED AGAIN AND I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC BUT BY THE TIME I GOT TO HIM, THE PROBLEM HAD STOPPED, HE COULDN'T REPLICATE IT AND COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE BRAKES. THEN ON NOVEMBER 30TH, 2012 IT HAPPENED AGAIN BUT THIS TIME I COULDN'T STOP AT A RED TRAFFIC LIGHT AND SAILED RIGHT THROUGH THE LIGHT COMING TO A HALT EVENTUALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION. I WAS EXTREMELY LUCKY THAT NO-ONE WAS IN FRONT OF ME AND NO-ONE ELSE HAD STARTED MOVING IN THE OTHER DIRECTIONS. AT THAT POINT I REALIZED THAT THERE WAS DEFINITELY A PROBLEM WITH MY BRAKING SYSTEM. I TOOK IT BACK TO MY MECHANIC. TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT, HE EVENTUALLY CHECKED ONLINE AND DISCOVERED THAT THERE HAD BEEN A RECALL ISSUED IN 2005 FOR MY MAKE, MODEL & YEAR FOR DEFECTIVE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDERS (RECALL #SR-05-003). HE CALLED MITSUBISHI TO SEE IF I WAS COVERED AND FOUND OUT THAT MY VIN# WAS NOT INCLUDED!! AT THAT POINT, THEY TOLD HIM I WOULD BE COVERED UNDER A "WARRANTY EXTENSION". I HAD THE CAR TOWED TO THE MITSUBISHI DEALER AND THEY DIAGNOSED IT AS NEEDING A REPLACEMENT MASTER CYLINDER. THEY CONTACTED MITSUBISHI HEADQUARTERS AND I HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT THEY HAVE DECLINED MY REQUEST TO BE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL AND HAVE THE MASTER CYLINDER REPLACED AT THEIR COST (AND NOW NO MENTION OF THIS "WARRANTY EXTENSION" THAT THEY TOLD MY MECHANIC). OBVIOUSLY MY CAR SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THIS RECALL AND I SHOULD HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED YEARS AGO - I HAVE BEEN DRIVING AROUND FOR YEARS WITH A FAULTY BRAKING SYSTEM!! *TR

MY V-6 (3.8) GT HAS APPROXIMATELY 80,000 MILES ON IT. THE CODE (PO421) HAS COME UP ON AN OBII WHICH IS THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. IN MY STATE (WASHINGTON) THE RECALL ON THIS PART IS NOT HONORED, DUE TO THE 80000 MILE WARRANTY. IN MANY OTHER STATES IT IS WARRANTIED TO 100,000 MILES. WHETHER OTHER STATES HAVE STRICTER EMISSION LAWS, OR WHATEVER THE REASON, THIS DOES NOT CHANGE THE LIFE EXPECTANCY, PERFORMANCE OR MAKEUP OF THE PART THAT IS EXPECTED TO LAST 100000 MILES. IN SHORT, I AM HOPING TO GET A STANDARDIZED AND EQUAL TREATMENT AS OTHERS DRIVING THE SAME VEHICLE WITH A FAIR WARRANTY. *TR

Summary of Complaint

WHILE PERFORMING A STOP THE BRAKE PEDAL LOST ALL PRESSURE AND WENT TO THE FLOOR. THE CAR DID STOP BUT TOOK LONGER TO DO SO. AFTER REVIEWING THE RECALL NOTICE FOR ABS BRAKES I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO A MITSUBISHI DEALER WHO CONFIRMED THERE WAS A RECALL BUT DID NOT INSPECT ANYTHING BEYOND DRIVING THE CAR TO TEST THE BRAKES. BETWEEN THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT AND THE ONE AND A HALF WEEKS THEY CLAIMED WAS THE NEXT AVAILABLE APPOINTMENT THE BRAKES RETURNED TO NORMAL OPERATION. THE RECALL (15V337) STATES THE HYDRAULIC UNIT WILL BE FLUSHED, CLEANED AND INSPECTED. THE DEALER INDICATED THEY WERE ONLY TESTING THE BRAKING SYSTEM BY DRIVING IT AND WHEN THE INCIDENT DID NOT PRODUCE THE SAME RESULT, THAT WAS THE END OF THEIR RESPONSIBILITY UNTIL I RECEIVED A CERTIFIED LETTER FROM THE MANUFACTURER. THIS RECALL WAS ISSUED IN MAY 2015 AND IT IS NOW THE BEGINNING OF OCTOBER 2015. THE MANUFACTURER IS OBVIOUSLY DELAYING DOING THE APPROPRIATE INSPECTION AND REPAIR WHILE THIS DANGEROUS ISSUE CONTINUES TO AFFECT MANY CONSUMERS.
