Exclamation 2018-2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Recall: Safety Systems may be Disabled

If the safety systems do not function as intended, it can increase the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V621000

Manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Components SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL, FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE

Potential Number of Units Affected 58,916

Summary

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles equipped with a Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) system and 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Eclipse Cross vehicles and 2017-2018 Outlander vehicles equipped with an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system and/or an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system. The software for the Hydraulic Unit Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may be incorrect, possibly preventing the intervention of a safety system such as automatic emergency braking, Anti-lock Braking (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), or the Brake Auto Hold (BAH) function when any of these systems are in use.

Remedy

MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will update the Hydraulic Unit-ECU software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2018. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-18-008.

I hope that any owners that have yet to take their vehicle in for the recall are driving in a manner that reduces the impact of a crash, sticking to local roads is a safe bet.

No one should be heavily relying on these safety systems anyways, so hopefully we don't see any accidents as a result of this issue. Shouldn't take long to work through the affected models if its just a software update fix.

that's the problem, most drivers don't have the education nor the experience to confidently merge these advanced safety systems with their own ability as a driver.

There really aren't any nuances to learn, as the majority of these systems are automated. I would like to see more automakers offering software patches over the air, because its unnecessary to have to schedule time to take your car into the dealer for this kind of repair.

some car makers have started going to customers instead of customers going to them, smaller brands like Mitsubishi can do it as well for more extensive updates that might require a loaner vehicle.
