Recall Alert: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport


Mitsubishi is recalling 305 model-year 2013 Outlander Sport crossovers due to a problem with the suspension system that could affect braking distance and vehicle control, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured between Jan. 17 and Jan. 25, 2013 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb). The stabilizer link on the front strut was improperly welded and may detach, causing damage to the tire or brake hose. This could lead to a difficulty steering, or the vehicle may require a longer stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front left strut assembly for free; the automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule. Owners can call Mitsubishi at 800-222-0037 or NHTSA's hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to, for more info.
