Additional information:

Among the 78 recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (“MMNA”) has recalled an estimated 14,791 model year Mitsubishi Outlander vehicles equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels. The Certification Label lists an incorrect rear wheel rim size. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

According to the NHTSA, the incorrect rim size information on the label can cause the operator to replace the rim with an incorrect rim size, increasing the risk of a crash.

MMNA will notify registered owners and send them a corrected certification label, free of charge. Owners can also choose to have the label replaced by a dealer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 26, 2018. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-18-006.
