The Fluorine anti-rust coating of the ramp shaft for the rear parking brake may peel off, allowing water to penetrate inside and rust the shaft and the internal calliper.
As the result, the shaft could become stuck, causing decreased parking brake force, leading to an increased risk of an accident.
The Model Year 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander PHEV models are affected by this recall.
