Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING TO WORK ONE MORNING IN JANUARY AROUND 7:00, MY BRAKE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR WHEN I ATTEMPTED TO STOP FOR TRAFFIC. I HAD TO STEER OUT OF MY LANE TO AVOID HITTING THE STOPPED CAR IN FRONT OF ME. I QUICKLY PUMPED THE PEDAL AND IT CAME BACK UP TO STOP MY CAR. I TOOK THE CAR TO A NEARBY FIRESTONE SERVICE CENTER BUT THEY COULD NOT LOCATE ANY PROBLEM, AS THE CAR WAS STOPPING OKAY AT THAT TIME. AT LEAST ONCE OR TWICE EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS SINCE JANUARY, I HAVE HAD THIS SAME THING TO OCCUR, THE BRAKE PEDAL GOES TO THE FLOOR WHEN STOPPING. I HAVE TO PUMP THE PEDAL VERY FAST AND HARD TO STOP. ONCE THE PEDAL IS BACK UP, IT STOPS FINE. I JUST NEVER KNOW WHEN IT IS GOING TO THE FLOOR. IN JULY 2015, I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM MITSUBISHI MOTORS NOTIFYING ME OF A RECALL DUE TO AN ABS HYDRAULIC UNIT PROBLEM. THE SAFETY RECALL NOTICE STATES MITSUBISHI WILL SEND ME A FOLLOW UP NOTICE WHEN THE REMEDY PARTS ARE AVAILABLE. I FEEL THIS IS NOT SUFFICIENT. I FEEL MY CAR IS TOO UNSAFE FOR DRIVING. IT SHOULD BE TOWED TO A LOCAL DEALERSHIP FOR IMMEDIATE REPAIR. I SHOULD BE GIVEN A SAFE RENTAL CAR UNTIL MITSUBISHI CAN FIX THE BRAKES. THE DEALERSHIP HAS INFORMED ME, THEY HAVE NO TOWING AVAILABLE, I WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR TOWING AND FOR A DIAGNOSTIC CHECK IF THEY CANNOT REPRODUCE THE BRAKE FAILURE, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A RECALL IN PLACE. I KNOW THIS IS AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM AND THEY PROBABLY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REPRODUCE THE FAILURE, THAT SHOULD NOT COST ME TOWING, DIAGNOSTIC OR STORAGE COST. IS MITSUBISHI ONLY RESPONSIBLE WHEN THERE IS A CRASH? I WANT MY CAR SAFE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. I FEEL MITSUBISHI SHOULD DO MORE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE EXPERIENCED AT LEAST 5 BRAKE FAILURES WHERE THE BRAKE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. I HAVE HAD 3 MASTER CYLINDER REPLACEMENTS AND HAVE TAKEN THE CAR TO A CERTIFIED MECHANIC MULTIPLE TIMES TRYING TO FIX THE PROBLEM. AFTER FINDING OUT ABOUT SAFETY RECALL SR-15-004, I TOOK VEHICLE TO MITSUBISHI DEALERSHIP TO HAVE THE RECALL REPAIRED ON 6/15/18. THEY FLUSHED OUT THE ABS SYSTEM AND REPLACED DOT 3 BRAKE FLUID WITH DOT 4, RAN ABS SYSTEM TEST AND IT CAME OUT "OK NO REPAIR TO ABS NEEDED AT THIS TIME." SINCE THEN, I HAVE EXPERIENCED 7 MORE BRAKE FAILURES WHERE THE PEDAL WENT TO THE FLOOR. MY CERTIFIED MECHANIC WAS FINALLY ABLE TO RE-CREATE THE INCIDENT, WHICH SEEMS TO HAPPEN AFTER, NOT DURING, BRAKING OVER ROUGH ROAD SURFACES. THE BRAKE PEDAL USUALLY COMES RIGHT BACK UP AFTER A FEW SECONDS OR MINUTES, AND IS FINE UNTIL ANOTHER BRAKING INCIDENT OVER ROUGH ROAD. THERE ARE NO CODES DELIVERED AT ALL DURING THESE INSTANCES. MY MECHANIC AND I BOTH ARE CONVINCED THAT THESE OCCURRENCES ARE RELATED TO THE RECALL PROBLEM OF DETERIORATION INSIDE THE ABS UNIT, AS NO OTHER BRAKE PROBLEMS EXIST. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING SEPTEMBER 2016 (MILEAGE 72,563) UNTIL PRESENT (AUGUST 4, 2018, MILEAGE 96,783) AND IS A VERY, VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM!!!

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING ON A DEAD END STREET AND THE BRAKES WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND I HAD NO STOPPING OR SLOWING DOWN EVEN WITH PUMPING THE BRAKES I HAD THE BRAKES CHECKED A MONTH PRIOR TO THIS BECAUSE THE BRAKE AND ABS LIGHT WOULD COME ON RANDOMLY AND THE TECHNICIAN AT MORRIES MAZDA REPORTED TO ME THEY WERE OPERATIONAL.. I ENDED UP HITTING A TREE (MY CHOICES WERE A LINE OF CARS OR A TREE, SO I PICKED THE TREE) WITH THE BRAKE MALFUNCTION AND NO AIR BAGS DEPLOYED AT AROUND 30 PLUS MPH. AND I SUSTAINED INJURIES. WHEN I LOOKED AT THE BRAKES IT APPEARED THAT THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE BRAKE WAS THE ONLY OPERATIONAL BRAKE AS IT WAS THE ONLY ROTOR TO NOT HAVE ACCUMULATED A HIGH AMOUNT OF RUST.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR WAS STOLEN LAST YEAR BY SOMEONE I KNEW, AND WAS WRECKED. AFTER THE WRECK, MYSELF AND PENNSYLVANIA STATE POLICE SPOKE TO THE PERSON AND HE SAID THE ACCIDENT WAS CAUSED BECAUSE THE BRAKES FAILED TO ENGAGE AS HE WAS MAKING A TURN AND THE RIGHT LOWER CONTROL ARM FAILED, WHICH CAUSED THE TIE ROD TO SNAP WHICH PUNCTURED THROUGH THE WHEEL AND OUT THE TIRE. DAMAGE DONE TO THE VEHICLE CONFIRMS THIS, AND I HAVE PICTURES AND DOCUMENTATION TO SUPPORT THIS CLAIM. CAR WAS LEFT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH ENTIRE FRONT RIGHT SUSPENSION DETACHED, CV SHAFT RIPPED OUT FROM THE MANUAL TRANSMISSION, ENTIRE FRONT RIGHT WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY WAS RIPPED OFF, CALIPER, BRAKE PADS AND ROTOR REMAINED ATTACHED TO THE HUB, BUT WERE DISCONNECTED FROM THE VEHICLE. THE WHEEL ALSO REMAINED INTACT ON THE HUB. THERE WAS SIGNIFICANT FRONT END DAMAGE TO THE BUMPER, FENDER, INNER WHEEL HUB SPLASH GUARDS, HEADLIGHT, ETC. AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. HIS SEAT BELT DID NOT LOCK ON IMPACT. CAR WAS TOTALED AND CONSIDERED SALVAGE, BUT I RECONSTRUCTED IT AND HAVE OVER $4,500 INVESTED IN REPAIRS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF THE BRAKES AND LOWER CONTROL ARM WORKED PROPERLY. HE WAS TRAVELING ON A SIDE STREET THROUGH A SMALL TOWN AROUND 11PM ON A CLEAR, WARM NIGHT. NO OTHER MOVING CARS WERE ON THE ROAD AT THE TIME, BUT HE DID SIDE SWIPE SEVERAL PARKED CARS.

I HAVE A 2007 MITSUBISHI ECLIPES GS. THAT HAS OVER 160,000 MILES. FOR THE LAST 9 MONTHS OR EVEN LONGER MY HUSBAND HAS TO PUSH THE PASSENGER SIDE DASH BOARD DOWN WHERE THE AIRBAG IS TO COVER IT BACK. NO, I HAVEN'T TOOK IT TO A DEALER YET, I FIGURE WITH THE WARRANTY OFF OF THE CAR, THE DEALER SHIP WOULD SAY I HAVE TO PAY TO FIX IT. I HAVE NO MONEY TO FIX IT. SO, I'M HOPING THAT SOMEONE WILL READ THIS AND TELL ME THAT THERE IS A RECALL ON IT SO, IT CAN BE FIXED THE RIGHT WAY. I HOPE THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG(DASH BOARD) WORKS INCASE OF A ACCIDENT. I'M PLANNING ON CALLING THE DEALER SHIP MONDAY 10/24/2016 TO GET MORE INFORMATION ON THE PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

5 YEARS AFTER BUYING VEHICLE, BRAKE PEDAL WOULD SPORADICALLY PUSH ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. TOOK ME 3 YEARS FOR SOMEONE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH SPONGY, WHISTLING BRAKES. ABS HYDRAULIC UNIT HAD GREASE CAKED UNDER IT, AND THE SHOP WOULD NOT LET ME DRIVE MY CAR BECAUSE IT WAS TOO DANGEROUS. HAD ABS SYSTEM REPLACED ON MY $, A YEAR LATER A RECALL CAME OUT ON THE ABS HYDRAULIC UNIT. MITSUBISHI DENIED MY CLAIM FOR REIMBURSEMENT BECAUSE THE PLACE THAT FIXED IT FAILED TO WRITE ON THE FORM THE REASONS I CAME IN TO GET IT FIXED. APPARENTLY I'M GOING TO HAVE AN $800 PART REPLACED FOR NO REASON. FOUND ON NHTSA THE INDICATORS OF A BAD PART AND THE FACT THAT IT IS DOCUMENTED MY ABS LIGHT CAME ON SHOULD BE ENOUGH. ALSO, PASSENGER SIDE DOOR: THE AUTOMATIC LOCK NO LONGER WORKS AND THERE IS NO KEY HOLE ON THAT SIDE; COULD BE A SLIGHT ISSUE BUT IS MORE ANNOYING THAN ANYTHING AND PUTS CAR AT RISK FOR THEFT.

Summary of Complaint

THE FRONT OF MY DASHBOARD (THE AIRBAG SITS BEHIND IT) IS COMING OFF OF MY VEHICLE. IT IS ON THE PASSENGER'S SIDE. I CONTACTED THE MITSUBISHI DEALER IN CHARLESTON, SC AND HE INFORMED ME THAT HE HAD SEEN NUMEROUS VEHICLES WITH THE SAME PROBLEM (MITSUBISHI). I CONSIDER THIS TO BE A SAFETY HAZARD BECAUSE ONCE THIS PIECE OF MATERIAL FALLS OFF THERE WILL BE NOTHING TO PROTECT THE PASSENGER FROM THE AIRBAG AT ANY TIME. I WAS INFORMED IT WOULD COST $1,200 TO FIX. THE ENTIRE DASHBOARD NEEDS TO BE REPLACED. MY VEHICLE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE 100,000 MILES ON IT YET. I BELIEVE THAT HAVING MY VEHICLE IN THE CONDITION IT IS IN IS VERY DANGEROUS AND MITSUBISHI OBVIOUSLY DIDN'T MANUFACTURE A GOOD RELIABLE PRODUCT WHICH IS NOT ONLY DECEPTIVE BUT DANGEROUS.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR WAS RECALLED FOR THE ANIT-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM AND THE RECALL NOTICE STATED THAT THE REPAIR WOULD TAKE APPROX 2.0 HRS TO EVALUATE AND 4.0 TO REPAIR. THE DEALER HAD MY CAR FOR 7 DAYS AND WOULD NOT GIVE ME A LOANER CAR. THE REASON THEY HAD IT SO LONG WAS BECAUSE MITSUBISHI DID NOT LET THE DEALERS HAVE THE REPLACEMENT PART. THEY HAD TO FAX THE INFO TO MITSUBISHI FOR APPROVAL THEN WAIT FOR THE PART TO BE SHIPPED. THEY WOULD NOT GIVE ME MY CAR BACK WHEN I TOLD THEM I HAD TO GET TO WORK THEY TOLD ME THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY IF IT'S A KNOWN RECALL MITSUBISHI DOESN'T AT LEAST LET THE DEALER HAVE 1 OR 2 PARTS ON HAND AND THEN REPLACE THEM AS USED. IT'S TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE FOR MITSUBISHI TO EXPECT TO HAVE SOMEONE'S CAR FOR A WEEK. THEY STATED IT WASN'T THEIR PROBLEM THAT I WOULD HAVE TO RENT A CAR IN ORDER TO GET TO WORK. I HAD TO PAY OVER $200 FOR A "FREE RECALL". SHAME ON YOU MITSUBISHI.
