Recall Alert: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

2013-mitsubishi-outlander-sport

Mitsubishi is issuing two recalls for model-year 2013 versions of its Outlander Sport compact crossover, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The first is to address a fuel pump problem that affects 3,724 all-wheel-drive-equipped Outlander Sports manufactured from June 11 through Dec. 11, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). These vehicles may be missing a fuel sending unit harness, which could result in a false fuel tank level reading; this could cause the vehicle to unexpectedly stall.

The second recall affects 4,539 Outlander Sports with faulty brake stop lamps manufactured June 11 through Sept. 11, 2012. NHTSA reports that in these vehicles, the brake lights may illuminate intermittently and the shift lever could also be moved out of Park without pushing the brake pedal. This condition could cause a crash. 

Mitsubishi has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for either recall but states that dealers will make the fixes for free. Owners can call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.

How exactly do you conclude this is a "fuel pump problem"? Or that the car can "suddenly stall"?

They have a recall for a batch of cars where the wires between the sending unit' and the fuel gauge weren't secured, and as a result, can brek, or short. If this happens, you could get an inaccurate reading and run out of gas. Thats not a fuel pump problem, or "suddenly stalling".
