Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer vehicles

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer (9/12/2014)  

Campaign Number: 14V562000

Component Name: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:GASOLINE:BELTS AND ASSOCIATED PULLEYS

Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Description: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Lancer, Lancer Evolution, and Outlander; 2009-2011 Lancer Sportback, Lancer Rilliart, and Lancer Sportback Ralliart; and 2011 Outlander Sport vehicles. The affected vehicles, manufactured with 4B1 engines, have an engine pulley and belt arrangement for turning the alternator, the cooling fan and the power steering pump (if equipped). These pulleys may experience unusual wear and allow for belt detachment.

Defect: If the drive belt detaches, the battery may discharge, resulting in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Corrective Action: Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drive belt with a rubber belt. Drive pulleys that are excessively worn will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on October 15, 2014. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-009.

Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
