Outlander 6-cyl

  • 121,356 miles
On my 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS all of at fluid poured out on the ground in my parking (entering community parking) and community drive way and can not not move the car, no drive at all.the automatic transmission light is illuminated. I took picture of underneath the car and shows the oil discharge from transfer case. I have no doubt in my mind it is transfer case assembly oil seal out of position. Looking at the recalls for my car I've come across this recall by Mitsubishi: Recall number:14V365000. Recall date:06/25/2014 replacement transfer case assembly. I called both Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820 and Mitsubishi dealer paul blanco in sacramento at 916-485-2277 and both of then either pretend to be unaware of the problem or did not honor their commitments to repair or replace the assembly and rectify the fault/problem. Appreciate your time and patience with me. Awaiting your kind and timely response. Ps:have more pictures but somehow I couldn't download more![xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).'

The defrost does not work well enough to kept window clear for driving. The anti skid electronics keeps locking out the transmission and it will not shift above 3 rd gear. Causing a drive speed limit below the required highway minimum. Have taken it in to the dealer and they charged me to fix it but the problem is recurring.

The transfer case oil seal dislodged, and the automatic transmission fluid (aft) entered the case assembly, resulting in poor transmission shifting with a strange sound. This should be covered by recall number 14V365000 (recall date 06/25/2014). But Mitsubishi customer relations department denied this important power train - transfer case recall, saying this vehicle has only four recalls, not including this recall. They also do not have any records on where and when these recalls were corrected. I have never contacted a such bad customer service department.

I purchased my 2007 Mitsubishi from quakertown Mitsubishi in April on 2017. In the last month my car will be stuck in the park position when trying to move out of park the care won't move. I called the dealership to get my car looked at. When I made the appointment I was not told that I would be charged a $59.95 diagnostic fee. I did not pay the fee because I didn't have the funds. They did replace my wipers per the recall. I haven't had any other problems until now. I make monthly payments on this car and still owe over 9 thousand on this car.

The contact owns a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander. While attempting to shift the vehicle into drive, the transmission failed to shift. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the brake lights failed and the vehicle would not shift into gear. The independent mechanic did not repair the vehicle. The dealer diagnosed that the brake lamp switch failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and stated that the vehicle was previously serviced per NHTSA campaign number: 08V680000 (exterior lighting). The manufacturer stated that they would not assist because the recall repair had already been completed. The approximate failure mileage was 115,000.

Vehicle soon to be recalled for front cross member corrosion. However, my vehicle experienced a failure of front and rear struts, front and rear stabilizer bar bushings and links (and shock absorbers) in early 2013. Car had been "bottoming out" over road bumps and had been used in Maine from 2007 - 2011, then in NJ afterward. Replaced Mitsubishi parts include: MN101368, 4056A079, 4156A014, MN184194, 4156A028, 4060A173, 4060A174, MN101372, MR272946, 4162A050, MR491946. (link-front suspension stabilizer, bushing-front suspension stabilizer, link-rear suspension stabilizer, bushing-rear suspension stabilizer, struts, front suspension, insulator-front suspension, bearing- front suspension str, shock absorbers- rear, insulator - rear shock. Many of these components are in the general area of the proposed recall. In addition, this vehicle had a front engine mount fail already too (in 2016). There are only 79,000 miles on the car currently, and were 59,000 at the time of the 2013 repair.
