There is some problem with brake. The ABS and asr lights are on. So I decided to go to the mechanic. The mechanic checked the car and he told me ABS pump is broken. Started when I was driving.

After my ABS, tcs, and check engine lights came on, I started to research what my problem was. Come to find out the ABS pump motor is getting low voltage resulting in poor braking and overall driveability in any weather. In my research I found that this is a very common problem with many Mitsubishi's around this year. I was completely fine with replacing the parts because the car isn't safe for my children, but when looking into the cost of replacement of such a small part, I (along with many other people) can not afford to spend ~$2000 to make our cars safe. If this has truly been a problem for so long why hasn't Mitsubishi handled it yet. Until I can find a cheap replacement or if Mitsubishi cares about their customers safety, I will be driving my 2010 Outlander with no ABS or traction control. Which is very unsafe.

Brakes which cause the vehicle not to move or move slower than 20mph. Fresno dealer was unable to be contacted for months. My wife has been frustrated with a vehicle that was supposed to be the one thing to keep our family safe. Traveling with our 2 children under the age of 2 has not felt safe in this vehicle.

Vehicle displays ABS/asc warning/service required. My mechanic says it's the ABS pump, which will cost over $2000 in parts/labor to replace. According to someone who works at a local Mitsubishi dealer, the 2010 ABS pumps are flawed - many vehicles have had the pump replaced. My mechanic said it's safe to drive, but advises to take extra care in heavy rain/snow/ice. Meanwhile the service light remains on. I already replaced the rear tire ABS sensor (almost $1000) because the vehicle would hesitate when taking my foot off the brake. )probably related to the problem with the pump.) I don't think it's right that Mitsubishi knows there is a problem and it's an expensive fix. They are putting their bottom line before customers' safety. I don't know how NHTSA mandates recalls, but I'd love to see this issue resolved via recall. Thank you.

My right rear wheel kept making a noise. So I pulled off the wheel to see the brake pad was almost completely gone. I had them replaced an the mechanic said the caliper was sticking he also said it should be covered by warranty. Upon taking it to the dealer, they said it is not covered because I had the pads changed even though it was occurring before with the original pads. Mitsubishi warranty is a joke!
