2000 CHRYSLER SEBRING
NHTSA Campaign ID: 00V421002
Component: SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER BALL JOINT
Manufacturer: DAIMLERCHRYSLER CORPORATION
Manufacture Dates: 07/01/1994 - 02/28/2000
Potential Units Affected: 393796
Defect Description:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES. IF THE RUBBER BOOTS ON THE LOWER LATERAL ARM BALL JOINTS OF THE FRONT SUSPENSION WERE DAMAGED DURING ASSEMBLY, DIRT AND WATER CAN INTRUDE. ALSO, MMC HAS ADDED THE POTENTIAL OF LEAKING MOISTURE, WHICH CAN CAUSE THE BALL STUD TO CORRODE.
Consequence:
THIS CONDITION COULD CAUSE THE LOWER LATERAL ARM BALL JOINT TO SEPARATE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH. THIS CAMPAIGN SUPERCEDES MMC'S PREVIOUS SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN, SEE 99V-066.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE LOWER LATERAL ARM BALL JOINT FOR WEAR. BALL JOINTS THAT EXHIBIT WEAR BEYOND THE ESTABLISHED TOLERANCE WILL BE REPLACED WITH NEWLY DESIGNED LATERAL ARM BALL JOINTS. BALL JOINTS THAT ARE WITHIN THE ESTABLISHED TOLERANCE WILL BE CLEANED AND A SPECIAL SEALANT WILL BE APPLIED TO PREVENT INTRUSION OF MOISTURE.

Recalls for 2007 Mitsubishi Raider Quad GT
2007 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 06V334000
Component: STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS
Manufacturer: MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC.
Manufacture Dates: 06/21/2006 - 07/19/2006
Potential Units Affected: 1516
Defect Description:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, THE METAL FORMING PART OF THE FRONT CROSSMEMBER MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY STAMPED RESULTING IN THE METAL BECOMING THINNER IN THE CROSS-SECTION THAN SPECIFIED. THIS COULD, OVER TIME, RESULT IN BREAKAGE OF THE CROSSMEMBER.
Consequence:
BREAKAGE OF THE CROSSMEMBER MAY ALLOW SEPARATION OF THE PASSENGER SIDE LOWER CONTROL ARM, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND REPLACE THE CROSSMEMBER FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 21, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT 888-648-7820.
2007 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 08V454000
Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
Manufacturer: MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC.
Manufacture Dates: 03/17/2005 - 02/28/2007
Potential Units Affected: 45988
Defect Description:
MITSUBISHI IS RECALLING 45,988 MY 2005-2007 ENDEAVOR, GALANT, ECLIPSE COUPE, AND MY 2007 ECLIPSE SPYDER VEHICLES. THE BRACKET THAT IS THE ATTACHMENT POINT FOR THE LEFT REAR FUEL TANK MOUNTING STRAP MAY HAVE BEEN IMPROPERLY FORMED DURING A METAL STAMPING PROCESS. THE PROCESS MAY HAVE CAUSED THE METAL TO HAVE A SPLIT IN THE AREA WHERE THE BOLT THAT HOLDS ONE OF THE TWO FUEL TANK STRAPS TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE VEHICLE IS LOCATED. IN THE EVENT THE FUEL TANK IS FULL AND THE VEHICLE IS SUBJECT TO A SEVERE COLLISION, THE BRACKET MAY BREAK AND ALLOW THE FUEL TANK TO DROP DOWN, POSSIBLY CAUSING A FUEL LEAK.
Consequence:
FUEL LEAKAGE IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE COULD RESULT IN A FIRE.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT TO SEE IF THE LEFT REAR FUEL TANK STRAP MOUNTING BRACKET HAS SPLITTING BEYOND A SPECIFIC LIMIT. VEHICLES WITH MODERATE TO SEVERE SPLITTING WILL BE REPAIRED USING A REINFORCEMENT CAP, A SPECIAL STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE, AND A RIVET TO REINFORCE THE FUEL TANK MOUNTING BRACKET. THE RECALL BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 20, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT 1-800-222-0037.
2007 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 06V414000
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Manufacturer: MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC.
Manufacture Dates: 08/23/2006 - 09/11/2006
Potential Units Affected: 1772
Defect Description:
ON CERTAIN VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS, THE KEY LOCK CABLE WAS IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED AND MAY NOT ALLOW THE CABLE END TO LOCK INTO THE FLOOR SHIFTER MECHANISM. THIS CAN RESULT IN THE INTERLOCK SYSTEM TO BECOME INOPERATIVE AND ALLOW THE IGNITION KEY TO BE REMOVED WITHOUT THE GEARSHIFT MECHANISM BEING PLACED IN THE PARK POSITION.
Consequence:
IF THE DRIVER DOES NOT SHIFT TO PARK BEFORE REMOVING THE KEY AND FAILS TO ENGAGE THE PARKING BRAKE, THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL AND A CRASH COULD OCCUR.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE IGNITION INTERLOCK CABLE AND REPLACE IT IF NECESSARY. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 20, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MITSUBISHI AT 1-888-648-7820.
2007 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V337000
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE
Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 12/23/2005 - 02/13/2009
Potential Units Affected: 74836
Defect Description:
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Eclipse vehicles manufactured April 20, 2005, to February 13, 2009, and 2007-2009 Eclipse Spyder vehicles manufactured December 23, 2005, to February 13, 2009. Due to corrosion inside the antil-lock brake system (ABS) unit, one or more of the internal valves may seize. In a braking event that uses the ABS, a seized valve would increase brake pedal travel and reduce braking ability.
Consequence:
A sudden reduction of braking performance may increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, flush and clean the ABS hydraulic unit using high grade brake fluid, free of charge. If the inspection shows that the valves may seize, the ABS unit will be replaced. The recall began on July 21, 2015. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-15-004.
