Mitsubishi Recalls Small Cars, SUVs For Engine Stalling Issue

mitsubishiIt seems like just hours ago that we wrote about a vehicle recall. Oh yeah, that’s because it was. This time around Mitsubishi is recalling nearly 166,000 small cars and SUVs for issues that could cause the vehicles to stall.

The Associated Press reports that Mitsubishi issued a recall for 165,923 model year 2008 to 2011 Lancer and Lancer Evolution vehicles, model year 2009 to 2011 Lancer Sportback, as well as model year 2008 to 2011 Outlander and model year 2011 Outlander Sport vehicles.

The affected vehicles have pulleys that can experience unusual wear and damage the drive belt. If the belt is damaged it can detach, preventing the battery from charging or disabling power steering.

Officials with Mitsubishi report they are unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the issue.

Owners of affected vehicles will be notified and dealers will replace worn belts and pulleys at no cost.
