Vehicles Affected: More than 37,000 model-year 2007-09 Mitsubishi Outlander crossovers manufactured between Dec. 15, 2006, and Oct. 31, 2007, and between April 16, 2008, and Aug. 22, 2009
The Problem: The brake light switch may malfunction, causing the brake lights not to illuminate when braking. This means other drivers would not be warned that the vehicle is stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Mitsubishi began notifying owners in mid-October, and dealers will replace the brake light switch for free.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
