The contact owns a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander. While driving 75 mph, the vehicle vibrated excessively. Lowering the speed reduced the vibration. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic to be diagnosed. The contact was informed that the front passenger side axle separated from the transmission, which caused the vibration in the driveshaft. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 68,000.
