Among the thirty-five (35) recalls the NHTSA announced this July comes news of the following:

Logo - Mitsubishi Motors North AmericaMitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (“MMNA”), a Cypress, California establishment and a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation of Minato, Tokyo and part of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance, has recalled an estimated 177,000 model year 2014-2019 Outlander and 2018-2019 Outlander PHEV vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Seat Belts – Inoperative Right Rear Seat Belt Buckle

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V403000 reports the second-row center Seat Belt Buckle may interfere with the right-side Seat Belt Buckle when the seat backs are folded down. The interference may cause the right-side Seat Belt Buckle cover to come off, making the buckle latch inoperable and unable to restrain an occupant.

According to the NHTSA, an unrestrained occupant has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

MMNA will notify registered owners, and dealers will modify the second-row center Seat Belt Buckle cover, install a new warning label to the second-row seat support base, and provide a new warning label insert for the owner’s manual, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin September 11, 2020.

Owners may contact MMNA Customer Service toll-free at 1-888-648-7820 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Mitsubishi’s designation for this recall is SR-20-004.
