Summary of Complaint

THE FRONT CROSSMEMBER WAS A RECALL THAT I HAD DONE, THIS PAST WEEKEND I HAD MY TIRES CHANGED AND THE SHOP SHOWED ME THAT MY REAR CROSSMEMBER IS CRACKED. THE CRACK IS ALONG THE FACTORY WELDING. THIS IS THE SAME ISSUE AS I HAD WITH THE FRONT CROSSMEMBER. IT CAUSES MAJOR SAFETY ISSUES AND I BELIEVE THAT IT SHOULD BE A RECALL AS IT IS CRACKED ALONG THE FACTORY WELD WHICH SHOULD HOLD BETTER THAN IT IS. THE REAR CROSSMEMBER SHOULD BE AS WITH THE BACK... RECALLED.

Summary of Complaint

MY SON ONLY WEEKS AGO WAS GIVEN HIS MOTHER'S 2007 OUTLANDER AS AN UPGRADE TO HIS FORMER VEHICLE. DAYS AGO, HE FOUND PIECES OF THE SUB FRAME BREAKING OFF UNDERNEATH AFTER HEARING AN ODD NOISE DURING OPERATION. THIS VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED NEW IN 2007 IN OMAHA, NE. MITSUBISHI'S RECALL FOR SUB FRAME CORROSION DOES NOT INCLUDE VEHICLES PURCHASED IN NEBRASKA AS IT ISN'T IN THE NARROWLY DEFINED "SALT BELT" (ALTHOUGH IOWA IS INCLUDED). IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO OMAHA, NE DURING THE WINTER YOU WOULD KNOW THAT THE CITY PUTS AS MUCH SALT AND SALT BRINE ON THE ROADS AS ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE NATION--WINTER WEATHER, I.E. SNOW AND ICE-- IN OMAHA IS SEVERE. VEHICLES THAT ARE OPERATED REGULARLY IN THE OMAHA AREA RUST PREMATURELY AND THAT IS A FACT. THIS VEHICLE IS NOW UNSAFE TO DRIVE AND THE VALUE IS PROBABLY NEAR ZERO BUT MITSUBISHI WILL NOT COVER THE COST TO REPAIR. THE NHTSA SHOULD EXTEND THE SUB FRAME RECALL TO OTHER STATES WHERE THE USE OF ROAD SALT IS EXTENSIVE I.E. NEBRASKA, COLORADO, UTAH, ETC...THIS IS A TRAVESTY AND SHOULD BE RECTIFIED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE SOMEONE IS SEVERELY INJURED OR KILLED DRIVING THESE VEHICLES.

Summary of Complaint

TOOK MY 2007 MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER XLS V-6 TO DEALERSHIP FOR SEVERAL RECALLS INCLUDING RECALL NO. 16V-458 / SR-16-003 ON MAY 05, 2018. I PICKED UP MY VEHICLE AND WAS TOLD IT DID NOT REQUIRE THE CROSS MEMBER REPLACEMENT AND THE ANTI CORROSION SPRAY WAS PERFORMED. AROUND 7:00 PM EDT SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 2019 WHILE ENTERING A EXIT LANE ON US 119 NORTHBOUND AT THE GREEN ROAD EXIT, MY CAR MADE A LOUD GRINDING SOUND AND STARTING PULLING VERY HARD TO THE LEFT AND CAME TO AN ABRUPT STOP AFTER APPROXIMATELY 10-15 FEET. FORTUNATELY, I WAS ENTERING THE TURN LANE AND WAS SLOWING DOWN OR IT COULD HAVE EASILY FORCE ME INTO THE MEDIUM DIVIDER OR EVEN INTO ONCOMING TRAFFIC. I COULD NOT MOVE THE VEHICLE FORWARD AND PUT MY EMERGENCY FLASHERS ON TO AVOID BEING REAR ENDED BY ONCOMING TRAFFIC. I WAS VERY CONCERNED AS I HAD MY 3 YEAR OLD GRAND DAUGHTER WITH ME AND IT IS A VERY CONGESTED AREA. I TRIED TO EXIT THE VEHICLE TO SEE IF I COULD DETERMINE WHAT WAS WRONG. THE DRIVER DOOR HAD TO BE FORCED OPEN AS I LATER DISCOVERED AFTER EXITING THE VEHICLE THAT THE FROM LEFT FENDER HAD BEEN PUSHED BACK INTO THE DOOR AREA BY THE FRONT TIRE. AFTER A QUICK INSPECTION IT APPEARED THE CONTROL ARM BROKE. AFTER REMOVING THE TIRE, IT WAS EVIDENT THAT THE CROSS MEMBER HAD SEPARATED FROM THE VEHICLE DUE TO EXTREME CORROSION CAUSING THE LOSS OF CONTROL AND ABRUPT STOP. THIS IS THE EXACT PROBLEM I HAD TAKEN IT INTO THE DEALERSHIP FOR THE RECALL AND WAS TOLD MINE DID NOT NEED REPLACED. I AM ATTACHING PICTURES OF THE VEHICLE TO SHOW THE MISSING AND BROKEN CROSS MEMBER. THERE IS NO WAY THIS CORRODED TO THE FAILURE POINT SINCE THE RECALL REPAIR WAS ALLEGEDLY COMPLETED. FURTHER MORE, IF TREATING THE AREA WAS SUPPOSEDLY SUFFICIENT TO PREVENT FURTHER CORROSION (AS OPPOSED TO THE REPLACEMENT OF THE CROSS MEMBER), THIS FAILURE SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN PLACE. THEREFORE, EVERY CROSS MEMBER SHOULD BE REPLACED!

Summary of Complaint

ON JANUARY 2, 2018 OUR LOCAL OVERNIGHT TEMPERATURE WAS A NEGATIVE (-)20 DEGREES F. THAT MORNING WHILE STILL IN MY DRIVEWAY, BOTH FRONT COIL SPRINGS BROKE AND THE RIGHT FRONT COIL SPRING PENETRATED THE INNER SIDEWALL OF THE 18" TIRE AND THIS RESULTED IN THE TIRE BECOMING TWO DISTINCT PIECES. IF THIS HAD HAPPENED WHILE DRIVING ON THE ROAD, IT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN A SERIOUS AND POSSIBLE DEADLY ACCIDENT. UPON CONTACTING MY DEALER, I WAS TOLD THAT UPON SEARCHING THE MITSUBISHI DATABASE, THAT A TSB 14-33-002 WAS NO LONGER POSTED AT THE DEALER INTERNET ACCESS POINT, APPARENTLY IT HAD BEEN PURGED FROM THE SYSTEM. I LEARNED OF TSB-14-33-002 BY OTHER SEARCHING ONLINE. MITSUBISHI WOULD NOT COVER THE FAILURE, DESPITE IT'S SERIOUSNESS TO PUBLIC SAFETY. I AM CONCERNED THAT 2007 MITSUBISHI OUTLANDERS HAVE A METALLURGY PROBLEM OR FAULTY MANUFACTURER'S DESIGN, AND SHOULD BE THE SUBJECT OF A NATIONAL SAFETY RECALL - AT LEAST IN COLDER CLIMATE STATES THAT USE CALCIUM CHLORIDE OR SALT ON THEIR ROADS. I HAVE THE CAR CURRENTLY IN A HEATED GARAGE AWAITING AN INSPECTION BY NHTSA OR MITSUBISHI. MY COMPLAINT IN WRITING TO MITSUBISHI REMAINS UNANSWERED. I SUGGEST THAT IF THESE VEHICLE SUFFER FAILED FRONT COIL SPRINGS AND ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT, THAT THE BROKEN COIL SPRING WILL BE CONSIDERED A RESULT OF THE ACCIDENT RATHER THAN THE CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT. IF THERE IS A CHAIN COLLISION INVOLVING OTHER VEHICLES, THEN AGAIN THE DRIVER MAY BE BLAMED AS THE CAUSE, WHEN IN REALITY THE FAILED SPRING WAS THE CAUSE. SUGGESTION: NHTSA MIGHT CHECK FOR ALL SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURE ACCIDENTS INVOLVING 2007 OUTLANDERS AND DETERMINE IF THEY SUFFERED BROKEN FRONT COIL SPRINGS AND A TORN UP FRONT TIRE. PHOTOS ATTACHED TO THIS REPORT. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS CAN BE TAKEN ONCE THE REPLACEMENT $260. SPRINGS ARRIVE AND WE REPLACE THEM, DOCUMENTING OUR FINDINGS. I AM WILLING TO SUBMIT FOR METALLURGY TESTS.

Summary of Complaint

THE HEADLIGHTS ON MY 2007 MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER LS SUDDENLY STOPPED WORKING WHILE I WAS DRIVING AT NIGHT ON A COUNTRY ROAD. THE HIGH BEAMS WORKED FINE. I HAD TO LEAVE THEM ON WHEN I WAS CROSSING OTHER CARS, WHICH CAUSED THE OTHER DRIVERS TO FURIOUSLY FLASH THEIR HIGH BEAMS ON AND OFF AT ME. IT WAS VERY DANGEROUS AND SCARY! TOOK IT TO A LOCAL MITSUBISHI DEALER WHO FIRST CHECKED THE FUSES, THEN TRIED TO FIX THE PROBLEM BY REPLACING THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH NEXT TO THE STEERING WHEEL, WHICH DID NOT HELP. THEY TOLD ME THEY WOULD NOT CHARGE ME FOR THE SWITCH SINCE IT DID NOT DO THE TRICK. ON A THURSDAY MORNING, I WAS ASKED TO LEAVE THE CAR WITH THEM FOR AT LEAST ONE DAY, POSSIBLY TWO SO THAT THEY COULD DO AN "IN-DEPTH" INVESTIGATION AND CHECK IF IT WAS A WIRING PROBLEM. I HAD TO RENT A CAR TO HAVE TRANSPORTATION. ON FRIDAY AT 5 PM, I RECEIVED A CALL THAT THEY FINALLY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM AND IT HAD TO DO WITH A "SMART FUSE BOX" OR "ETACS", THAT IT WAS AN EXPENSIVE PART AND THEY DID NOT HAVE IT IN STOCK, SO I WOULD NOT GET MY CAR BACK UNTIL WEDNESDAY OF THE FOLLOWING WEEK! I ASKED HOW MUCH THE REPAIR WOULD COST AND WAS QUOTED $1,300! I SAID GIVE ME THE CAR BACK TONIGHT AND I'LL COME BACK WHEN THE PART COMES IN. WAS TOLD IT WOULD THEN COST EVEN MORE IN LABOR, BECAUSE IT WAS TAKEN APART AND WOULD NEED TO BE PUT BACK TOGETHER, THEN "OPENED UP" AGAIN! SO NOW I AM PAYING FOR THIS EXORBITANT REPAIR PLUS SEVERAL MORE DAYS FOR THE RENTAL. I SEE THAT MODELS 2009 AND UP HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN RECALLED FOR THE SAME ISSUE, AND AM OUTRAGED THAT THESE TECHNICIANS DID NOT FIGURE THIS OUT IMMEDIATELY, SINCE THEY HAVE DEALT WITH THE PROBLEM BEFORE. I FEEL VERY STRONGLY THAT IT SHOULD BE A RECALL MATTER AS WELL FOR THE 2007 MODELS. MY CAR ONLY HAS 75,000 MILES OR SO ON IT AND I WAS HOPING TO DRIVE IT FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER YEAR OR TWO. I WILL UPLOAD THE BILL WHEN I GET THE CAR BACK TOMORROW.
