Recall roundup: Mitsubishi Outlander Sport for airbag problems image

The Japanese based automaker Mitsubishi has recently announced a recall for the Outlander Sport models because of a problem with its airbags.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 733 units of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will be affected by this recall across the United States and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the airbags fixed. The NHTSA says that the wiring for the airbags may not have been properly routed when the seat covers have been installed and the seats might have damaged the wiring, in which case the illumination of the airbag warning light on the dashboard will result.

If a crash will occur, the side mounted airbag on the driver’s side will not deploy, in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. The affected vehicles have been produced between the 20th of July, 2012, and the 29th of May, 2013. The company’s dealership network will notify the owners of the affected models and if the damage is found, the seat mounted airbag will be completely replaced, free of charge.
