The 2003-2006 Mitsubishi Lancer and 2003-2013 Mitsubishi Outlander will be recalled in Canada. Exactly 64,305 units are affected.
What’s the matter? Well, road salt can corrode the front crossmember assembly, which may ultimately lead to separation of the control arm at the mounting point. This would allow the wheel to rotate off its designed axis, and could result in a loss of vehicle control.
Therefore, Mitsubishi dealers will inspect the crossmember and apply an anti-corrosion treatment or replace the assembly, as required.
