Mitsubishi recalls more than 3,000 Outlander Sports for sunroof fix


Mitsubishi is recalling more than 3,000 of its Outlander Sport compact SUV to correct an issue with the vehicles’ optional panoramic sunroofs.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said 3,181 Outlander Sports from the 2011 model year were being recalled in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. At issue was the lack of a primer being installed around the sunroof during the manufacturing process.

This could cause the glass roof to become detached from the Outlander Sport while it’s in motion, “resulting in a road hazard to other vehicles,” according to NHTSA. Though current Outlander Sports are built in the U.S., this recall affects those made in Japan.


No accidents or injuries have been reported as a result of this issue, said Mitsubishi spokesman Dan Irvin. Customers with affected vehicles will be notified by Mitsubishi. If necessary, the glass will be reinstalled.
