  • 133,847 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. The contact stated that the vehicle failed inspection due to an incomplete recall repair pertaining to the catalytic converter. The manufacturer stated that they were no longer liable for any failures on the vehicle because the mileage exceeded 150,000, which excluded the vehicle from qualifying for the recall repair. The "recall" was not found on the safercar.gov website and may have been deemed as a "safety improvement campaign" instead. The failure and current mileages were less than 133,847.
