Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited—Outlander (MY 2013)
What are the defects?
The potential defects or combination of defects are as follows:
(1) The Electronic Power Steering computer may fail, causing the EPS warning lamp to illuminate and in the worst case requiring increased effort to steer the vehicle.
(2) When driving in a tunnel with the Adaptive Cruise Control "On”, the system may judge the wall of the tunnel to be an approaching vehicle and automatically operate the brakes.
(3) "ACC failure" (Adaptive Cruise Control), "FCM failure" (Forward Collision Mitigation) and "ASC failure" (Active Stability Control) may be displayed on the combination meter with a warning alarm, and these systems may stop functioning.
(4) The ETACS (Electronic Time and Alarm Control System) computer may fail, resulting in the turn signals mal-functioning if the “answer back” feature is activated when operating the electric tail gate.
What are the hazards?
The defects listed above, whether they occur individually or in a combination, may pose a safety hazard to the driver and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Mitsubishi is notifying all affected customers by letter. Owners are advised to contact their authorised Mitsubishi dealership for inspection and rectification.
