14 Mitsubishi recalls in 2018 – VIN lookup

In 2018, Mitsubishi announced 14 recalls that affected six of its models, according to the Rapex notifications. How to check your VIN for free to see if any of them is also relevant to your car?

In 2018 Mitsubishi announced the most of its recalls for ASX and Outlander models. Both of them covered more than a half of all issued actions (8). Among the faults we can find faulty door locks, corroding handbrake, water penetration onto the wiper link, poorly welded exhaust, or cracked engine’s multi-belt auto tensioner.



With the Outlander, Lancer and Lancer Sportback models from 2008 to 2009, the sunroof glass might detach from the outer frame and come off. In some models of the 2018 model year, including the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, ASP and FCM assistance systems may fail.

* We’ve divided all the recalls according to the models into the table at the end of the article.
