Mitsubishi Outlander (2008 – 2012)

Published on 18 November 2018

The flange area of the engine’s multi-belt auto tensioner may crack under high-load driving conditions, which may cause the drive-belt to fall off. If this occurs, the engine warning light will illuminate, there will be a loss of power steering assistance, the battery will discharge and the engine may overheat and stall.

The recall affects Model Year 2008 to 2012 vehicles.
