The front crossmember was a recall that I had done, this past weekend I had my tires changed and the shop showed me that my rear crossmember is cracked. The crack is along the factory welding. This is the same issue as I had with the front crossmember. It causes major safety issues and I believe that it should be a recall as it is cracked along the factory weld which should hold better than it is. The rear crossmember should be as with the back... recalled.

Recall issued August 2016 for possible corrosion on cross member. Vehicle taken to dealer, inspected, anti rust agent applied to cross member. On subsequent visits to two independent garages for service we were advised of severe corrosion of under carriage, steering parts, and suspension. The first visit was in October 2016, second visit in February, 2017. It is evident the work done by the dealer was unsatisfactory. The cross member and related parts affected by this corrosion need to be replaced. And steering, supension

Mitsubishi has extended the warranty on this vehicles front coil springs to 120,000 miles or 9 years (whichever comes first). My front coil springs went bad at 120,500 and Mitsubishi refuses to make the necessary repair to their defective parts. The front coil springs, according to Mitsubishi have a "potential" to "corrode from prolonged exposure to anti-freezing agents (such as calcium chloride) used in cold weather areas to clear ice and snow from roadways". I do live in Ohio and we have a lot of snow here, but upon searching online I have found that many others who do not live or travel to areas where roads need to be salted (e.g. Texas, Florida) have also had the same problem. Also, if alternative front coil springs do not have the potential to corrode under these conditions, should Mitsubishi not be liable for providing customers with these satisfactory parts regardless of mileage? it seems to be universal and it is my belief that Mitsubishi put out a vehicle with a defective part that they are now refusing to recall. Their negligence in this matter is not fair to consumers who pay for quality vehicles with quality parts.

Direct sunlight is coming through the front windshield of my 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander ES, you can't read the digital radio display or clock. This causes a driving distraction because it causes the driver to look at the digital radio display for a much much longer than normal period to figure out which radio station that is on or to read the clock. Although this is a great inconvenience, it can also become a safety issue as the driver spends considerably more time focusing on the digital display because it is difficult to read rather than on the road during direct sunlight periods. It is my opinion that this digital radio display problem can contribute to an accident because it is distracting the driver from focusing on driving conditions and turns the driver's Focus to the radio because the digital display is difficult to read during direct sunlight periods. Mitsubishi motors was contacted and they agreed that this can be a problem, however, they don't have a "fix" for it now. They told me that in the event they come up with a "fix", they will contact me.
