2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Recalled for Airbag Flaw

2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Recalled for Airbag Flaw

Approximately 733 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport crossovers from the 2013 model year are being called back because of a potential problem with the driver side seat-mounted airbags. 

According to NHTSA documents, only models equipped with leather seats are affected. Vehicles that fall under the recall may have seats with improperly routed wiring. If affected seats are height adjusted, the wiring could be damaged and in some cases that could lead to the airbag light warning light being triggered. In a crash, the airbag might not deploy.

Affected models were built between July 20, 2012 and May 29, 2013. Mitsubishi says it will replace the affected parts free of charge through its dealer network, but hasn’t specified a timeline for the work to take place.

Last year, the 2013 Outlander Sport was the subject of two separate recalls announced at the same time. A total of over 8,000 were recalled for having defective taillights and for having a false fuel gauge reading.
