VIN: JA4AS3AW0DU****

Summary of Complaint

1) Transmission or power train 2) The vehicle may be inspected at request 3) The vehicle starts and may go for about a mile, and then it will buck and act like it's in neutral for all gears. I got stuck in the middle of an intersection turning left. I managed to get it back home, and then needed help pushing it into the driveway, where it sits. 4) I have seen several similar complaints for the years; 2012, and 2014 through 2021. 5) The vehicle has been worked on, and the valve body for the transmission was replaced about a month ago. 6) The warning message that popped up just before the issue was "Transmission service is required." It appeared on 9/27/2021, the day I was giving a ride to someone across town. I had recently replaced the valve body, because the solenoids were failing, and the transmission itself was serviced.

Summary of Complaint

My catalytic converter just went in my vehicle. I was told by dealership that the warranty expired by months. I contacted Mitsubishi and a case was opened. I was called by them today and they wont make an exception even though my mieage is well under the 80000 miles (under by over 28,000 miles) When I asked to talk to a manager I was told no and no exception would be made. I just want them to pay for the defective part.

VIN: 4a4ap4au8de****

Summary of Complaint

My vehicle has had over 10 recalls but Mitsubishi has refused to properly fix any of the problems. I will attach a photo of the control arms and certain parts and recalls THEY cleared, and sent me on my way with. Now there is full suspension damage. Tire damage. And an entire list of other recalls that were never fixed by Mitsubishi. Also Airbag light, incorrect gas level. Windshield fluid leaking, and more. My front tire is about to fly off. There are problems with the struts. And no mechanic wants to touch it due to a strut recall and can’t even buy struts anywhere for my car. They have been taken off the market completely. I have a 8 year old child in this car. And both of our lives at risk. I have brought it to several mechanics and they are in shock at the damage and how we have survived. I have had to pay with my own money for certain repairs because Mitsubishi said “everything looks fine” and sent me on my way. And now refuse to open a claim and pay it back. Or fix all the damage it has caused since the first control arm problem. I can get receipts and invoices together. But honestly the entire car is A huge liability and needs an IMMEDIATE SOLUTION!

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN AN ACTIVE STABILITY CONTROL SERVICE WARNING DISPLAYED ON THE DASHBOARD. IT WAS COUPLED WITH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND IMMEDIATELY CAUSED MY CAR TO SEIZE UP MAKING ME MOMENTARILY LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. AS I REGAINED CONTROL THE VEHICLE CONTINUED TO RESIST ANY ACCELERATION WHILE THE RPMS WOULD FREQUENTLY SPIKE. I ALSO LOST ANTI-LOCK BRAKE FUNCTIONALITY WITH NO DASHBOARD WARNING. THROUGH MY MECHANIC I LATER FOUND OUT THE CAR WAS FORCING ITSELF INTO "LIMP MODE" BECAUSE THE ENGINE AIR FLOW SENSOR WAS GIVING A FAULTY READING. ALL OF THIS PUT MY CAR INTO CONDITIONS FOR A CRASH HAD I NOT ACTED QUICKLY TO AVOID IT. IT ALSO CREATED A REPAIR BILL THAT WAS UNNECESSARY AS THIS IS APPARENTLY PART OF A KNOWN TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN TSB-13-13-008. I FIND IT INAPPROPRIATE AND IRRESPONSIBLE OF MITSUBISHI TO NOT HAVE ALERTED ME TO THE DEFECT IN THE AIR FLOW SENSOR AND FILTER BOX. IT CAUSED A NEEDLESS DANGEROUS DRIVING CONDITION AND EXCESS REPAIRS.

THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER WAS RECALLED AND REPLACED IN NOVEMBER OF 2017, BUT NOW THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD IS RUSTED FROM THE INSIDE WHICH CAUSED BITS TO BREAK OFF AND FALL INTO THE NEW CATALYTIC CONVERTER. NOW THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD NEEDS TO BE REPLACED (THERE ARE ONLY 4 PARTS IN THE NATION FOR THIS??) AND THE NEW, LESS THAN A YEAR OLD, CATALYTIC CONVERTER HAS TO BE CLEANED OUT OF ALL THE RUSTY METAL BITS. THERE IS A RATTLING NOISE IN THE ENGINE WHEN IDLE (RPMS JUMP UP AND DOWN SLIGHTLY IN IDLE), QUIETS A BIT ONCE YOU HIT 2-3K RPMS AND THEN IS LOUD AGAIN AROUND 1-2K RPMS. THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD IS NEARLY A THOUSAND DOLLARS TO REPLACE! I DON'T LIVE NEAR THE OCEAN OR A PLACE WHERE IT SNOWS FREQUENTLY. MY 5 YEAR OLD CAR SHOULDN'T HAVE RUST IN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE OTHER RECALL JUST LAST YEAR. SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT HAS BEEN ON FOR WEEKS SINCE THE PROBLEM STARTED.
