Automaker Mitsubishi recalls more 130,000 vehicles in two campaigns

Posted on May 13, 2015 4:19 pm under Product Liability

Automotive giant Mitsubishi has announced two recall campaigns after learning about auxiliary glitches that may increase the risk of injurious crashes, Nasdaq reported on May 9.

In the first campaign, Mitsubsihi is recalling certain models of Outlander and Lancer vehicles manufactured between 2009 and 2010 after learning that an electronic control unit that controls the windshield wiper, as well as the head and tail lights, may malfunction. This recall potentially covers 53,396 units.

The second campaign involves 76,958 units of certain Outlander and Lancer models manufactured from 2009 to 2011. In this recall, units were installed with a defective blower motor that may cause the windshield defroster to underperform.

No dates have been released as to when Mitsubishi will notify affected customers. The car maker promised to replace the defective components free of charge.
