Recall roundup: Mitsubishi Lancer EVO image

Mitsubishi has recently announced a recall for certain Lancer Evolution vehicles because of a problem with the powertrain which may reduce the ability to shift.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vehicles in the United States, because of a problem with the powertrain, which may reduce the ability to shift. According to the NHTSA, the defect may cause the clutch master cylinder to fail and this will affect the cars’ ability to shift into gear, increasing the risk of a crash. The feds are saying that the affected vehicles are equipped with the five-speed manual transmissions and not with the 6-speed dual clutch gearboxes.

Owners of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vehicles, which have been affected by this problem, will be announced by the Japanese based automaker around November 11, and they will have to take their rides to a car dealer, which will replace the affected clutch master cylinders free of charge. The affected cars have been produced between December 12, 2007, and March 5, 2013, and the total number stands at 10,474. For any extra details on this recall, owners can contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820.
