Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports following Mitsubishi Vehicles are subject to this recall:

  • Mitsubishi Outlanders, model year 2013

According to the ACCC, the recall has been issued for the following four (4) hazards:

  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 apply 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 malfunctioning if the “answer back” feature is activated when operating the electric tail gate.

The ACCC reports that if the above hazards occur (whether individually or in a combination), they may pose a safety hazard to the driver, passengers and/or other road users.
