Η National Highway Traffic Safety Administration των Η.Π.Α. ανακοίνωσε δύο ξεχωριστές ανακλήσεις αυτοκινήτων της Mitsubishi. Και οι δύο καμπάνιες, αφορούν βοηθητικά συστήματα ενώ αξίζει να σημειώσουμε ότι δεν έχουν γίνει γνωστά ατυχήματα ή τραυματισμοί που να σχετίζονται με τα προβλήματα.

Η πρώτη και μεγαλύτερη ανάκληση, έχει να κάνει με το μοτεράκι που ξεψύχει το παμπρίζ και από ότι φαίνεται, δεν κάνει καλά την δουλειά του. Η καμπάνια περιλαμβάνει 76.958 οχήματα και πιο συγκεκριμένα, 2009-2011 Lancer, 2010-2011 Lancer Sportback, 2010-2011 Lancer Evolution, 2009-2011 Outlander και 2011 Outlander Sport.

Η μικρότερη καμπάνια, αφορά 53.395 οχήματα και σκοπό έχει να διορθώσει ένα πρόβλημα με την ECU που διαχειρίζεται τα εμπρός και πίσω φώτα και τους υαλοκαθαριστήρες. Σύμφωνα με την ανακοίνωση, το πρόβλημα είναι “ασταθής τάση” που μπορεί να προκαλέσει προβλήματα στη λειτουργία των συστημάτων που ανέφερα. Τα μοντέλα που καλύπτει η ανάκληση είναι 2009-2010 Lancer, 2010 Lancer Sportback, 2010 Lancer Evolution και 2009-2010 Outlander.

Οι ιδιοκτήτες των οχημάτων θα ειδοποιηθούν και τα προβληματικά εξαρτήματα θα αντικατασταθούν άνευ φυσικά χρέωσης.

RECALL Subject : Loss of Lights and/or Windshield Wipers Report Receipt Date: APR 20, 2015 NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V232000 Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM Potential Number of Units Affected: 53,396 Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

SUMMARY: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Mitsubishi Lancer vehicles manufactured January 12, 2009, to July 6, 2010, 2009-2010 Outlander vehicles manufactured January 12, 2009, to August 27, 2010, 2010 Lancer Sportback vehicles manufactured June 17, 2009, to June 8, 2010, and 2010 Lancer Evolution vehicles manufactured July 14, 2009, to August 4, 2010. The affected vehicles have an electronic control unit (ECU) that controls the head lights, tail lights, and windshield wipers. Due to a manufacturing error, the voltage inside this ECU may be unstable.

CONSEQUENCE: Unstable voltage could result in intermittent failure of the vehicle’s head lights, tail lights, and windshield wipers. If the headlights and/or windshield wipers fail, the driver could have reduced visibility. If the tail lights fail, the vehicle could be less visible. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected ECU, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi’s number for this recall is SR-15-002.

NOTES: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
