NHTSA Campaign ID:EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS
Manufacturer:MITSUBISHI CARIBBEAN
Manufacture Dates:06/01/1998 - 01/31/1999
Potential Units Affected:100432

Defect Description:

CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 208, 'OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION.' THE BILINGUAL ENGLISH/SPANISH REMOVABLE AIR BAG WARNING LABELS AFFIXED TO THE DASH AND TO THE SUNVISOR DO NOT MEET THE SIZE REQUIREMENTS OF THE STANDARD.

Consequence:

THIS DOES NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE STANDARD.

Action:

MITSUBISHI CARIBBEAN WILL MAIL A CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION LETTER CONTAINING A WRITTEN DESCRIPTION AND A GRAPHIC OF THE BI-LINGUAL DASHBOARD AIR BAG WARNING LABEL. IN ADDITION, ALL CURRENT 2000-2004 NATIVA OWNERS WILL ALSO RECEIVE REPLACEMENT AIR BAG ALERT LABELS FOR THE SUN VISORS. THIS RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MARCH OR APRIL 2005.

1999 MITSUBISHI 3000GT
NHTSA Campaign ID:POWER TRAIN:TRANSFER CASE (4-WHEEL DRIVE)
Manufacturer:MITSUBISHI AMERICA
Manufacture Dates: -
Potential Units Affected:15000

Defect Description:

ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, A CONDITION EXISTS THAT ALLOWS OIL TO LEAK FROM THE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE TRANSFER CASE.

Consequence:

LOW OIL LEVELS IN THE TRANSFER CASE COULD CAUSE BEARING DAMAGE AND RESULT IN DRIVE TRAIN LOCKUP, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Action:

DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TRANSFER CASE FOR INDICATIONS OF OIL LEAKAGE OR DAMAGE. VEHICLES THAT HAVE OIL LEAKAGE WILL HAVE THE TRANSFER CASE RESEALED AND RE-FILL THE TRANSFER CASE TO THE PROPER LEVEL, OR REPLACED THE TRANSFER CASE IF THERE IS EVIDENCE OF DAMAGE.

1999 MITSUBISHI CARIBBEAN VEHICLE
NHTSA Campaign ID:POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:COOLING UNIT AND LINES
Manufacturer:MITSUBISHI CARIBBEAN
Manufacture Dates:05/01/1998 - 10/31/2000
Potential Units Affected:2801

Defect Description:

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS. A HOSE MANUFACTURING PROCESS ALLOWED THE REINFORCEMENT YARD TO BREACH THE INNER LAYER OF SOME AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION HOSES WEAKENING THE INNER WALL WHICH COULD RESULT IN LEAKAGE OF THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID.

Manufacturer:MITSUBISHI FUSO TRUCK OF AMERICA, INC.
Manufacture Dates:02/27/1998 - 12/27/2003
Potential Units Affected:15549

Defect Description:

ON CERTAIN MEDIUM DUTY TRUCKS, RUST BUILD-UP ON THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION (A/T) SHIFT LINKAGE MAY CAUSE THE LINKAGE TO BIND. RUST BUILD-UP IS ACCELERATED IN GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS THAT ARE SITUATED NEAR LARGE BODIES OF SALT WATER, OR IN REGIONS WITH HEAVY SNOW/ICE MELTING COMPOUND USAGE IN WINTER MONTHS.

Consequence:

THE EFFORT REQUIRED TO OPERATE THE A/T SHIFT CONTROL LEVER MAY INCREASE IF THE LINKAGE BINDS DUE TO RUST BUILD-UP. THE SHIFT CONTROL LEVER MAY BECOME INOPERATIVE, OR THE PHYSICAL SHIFT LEVER POSITION ON THE SHIFT LEVER HOUSING GEAR INDICATOR MAY NOT MATCH THE ACTUAL GEAR SELECTION AT THE TRANSMISSION.

Action:

DEALERS WILL INSTALL A MODIFIED A/T SHIFT CONTROL LEVER ASSEMBLY. THE RECALL BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 26, 2005. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI FUSO AT 1-856-467-4500.

Potential Units Affected:10333

Defect Description:

ON CERTAIN TRUCKS, THE TIE ROD END BALL JOINT DUST BOOT WAS DESIGNED WITH INSUFFICIENT SEALING ABILITY. THIS CONDITION COULD ALLOW CONTAMINATION TO ENTER INTO THE TIE ROD END BALL JOINT, ABNORMALLY WEARING THE RESIN BEARING LOCATED INSIDE THE JOINT.

Consequence:

THE TIE ROD END BALL JOINT COULD SEPARATE FROM THE TIE ROD END, DISABLING THE STEERING SYSTEM, AND CAUSING A CRASH .

Action:

DEALERS WILL INSTALL MODIFIED TIE ROD END ASSEMBLIES. THE RECALL BEGAN ON JANUARY 13, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT MITSUBISHI FUSO AT 856-467-3917.

Consequence:

IN THIS CONDITION, THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE MAY BEND AND BREAK DUE TO FATIGUE. THE PARKING BRAKE MAY BECOME INOPERATIVE AND THE TRUCK MAY ROLL AND CAUSE A CRASH, PROPERTY AND PERSONAL INJURIES.

Action:

DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE FOR BENDING OR DAMAGE AT THE CABLE END AND INSTALL A MODIFIED PARKING BRAKE CABLE ASSEMBLY IF THE CABLE IS BENT OR DAMAGED AT THE CABLE END. IF NO BENDING OR DAMAGE EXISTS, DEALERS WILL INSTALL A CABLE RETAINER ON THE CABLE END OF THE PARKING BRAKE CABLE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON JANUARY 13, 2005.
