Recall Alert: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

13_Outlander_Sport--3

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 733 model-year 2013 versions of the Outlander Sport crossover manufactured between July 20, 2012, and May 29, 2013; only vehicles equipped with leather seats are affected.

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that the driver-side seat-mounted air bag wiring may have been improperly routed during the leather seat cover installation process. If the seat height is adjusted, the wiring could get damaged, resulting in the illumination of the air bag warning light. If a crash occurs, the airbag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mitsubishi has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Mitsubishi at 800-222-0037 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
