Mitsubishi Issues Recall for Outlander Vehicles with Potentially Defective Door Latches
An estimated 35,674 Outlander and Outlander Sport vehicles are included in this recall
Mitsubishi Motors is recalling certain model year 2016 Outlander and Outlander Sport vehicles.
The inside door latch mechanisms on the affected vehicles may not latch securely in high temperatures, allowing the doors to open while vehicle is in motion.
If a door opens while the vehicle is in motion, it can increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.
An estimated 35,674 Outlander and Outlander Sport vehicles are included in this recall.
Mitsubishi will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local Mitsubishi dealers will replace the door latches free of charge.
