Average Crossover SUV

When I first got it, after 1 week of driving it wouldnt go over 20MPH - turns out dealership had old tubes in it (even though I bought it brand new). Engine made weird sounds, constantly showing that its low tire pressure - dealership keeps saying its OK (car, chip, etc) - doesnt drive that smooth. Wouldnt buy it again.

Campaign Number: 16V458000
Component Name: SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM
Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Description: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2002-2007 Lancer, 2004 Lancer Wagon, 2003-2006 Lancer Evolution, 2003-2006 Outlander and 2007-2013 Outlander V-6 vehicles originally sold in, or ever registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. In the affected vehicles, the front lower control arms may detach due to the front cross member corroding from salt water exposure such as from road salt use.
Defect: A detached front control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Action: MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front cross members. Depending on the level of existing corrosion, either a sealing/anti-corrosion agent will be applied or the front cross member will be replaced with a new one that has a sealing/anti-corrosion agent applied to it. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820.

2012 Mitsubishi Outlander (6/25/2014)

Campaign Number: 14V366000
Component Name: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS
Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Description: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2013 Outlander vehicles equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Corrective Action: Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the power steering pressure tube and return tube, free of charge. The recall began in August 2014. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-006.
