2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Recalled for Several Issues

Over 8,000 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport models are being recalled for three different issues, affecting only 2013 model year vehicles.

Two separate recalls are being issued, the first of which involves the brake lights on the Outlander Sport. 4,539 vehicles manufactured from June 11, 2012 to September 11, 2012 may have brake lights that work intermittently or will continuously illuminate without pressing the brake pedal. Those same vehicles can also shift out of park without employing the brake pedal.

The second recall affects 3,724 all-wheel drive Outlander Sport vehicles and involves the possibility of a false fuel tank level reading. This is due to those vehicles being built without a fuel sending unit harness. Those vehicles were built from June 11, 2012 to December 11, 2012. It’s worth noting that despite 3,724 vehicles are being recalled, the Japanese automaker stated that only 14 of those vehicles are affected by the defect.

All affected vehicles will be repaired free of cost.
