Defect SummaryMitsubishi is recalling certain model year 2012 outlander sport vehicles, manufactured from november 9, 2011, through december 16, 2011. these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 108, lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment. the turn signal levers in the vehicle were not manufactured correctly, which could result in the auto-cancel function of the turn signal becoming inoperative.
Consequence SummaryThe turn signal may continue to signal an intended directional change after a point when the auto-cancel function, if operating properly, would have terminated the signal. a following or oncoming driver may receive inaccurate indications of the vehicle operator's intended maneuvers, thereby increasing the risk of a crash between vehicles due to improper vehicle signaling.
Corrective SummaryDealers will inspect the turn signal lever and replace it with a new one free of charge. no vehicles have been retailed to customers with this potential condition, no recall bulletin or owner letters will be prepared. you may contact mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.

 I was driving in freeway 110 when the passenger side airbag loosened and hanged semi-open. i did not notice it until i got home and a friend of mine came with me to pick up my son in school. when she sat in the front passenger seat, she noticed it and pointed it out to me. i just got this vehicle a month ago brand new. i was lucky it did not deploy while i was in the freeway because if it did it could possibly cause me to have an accident. i feel that mitsubishi should inspect their vehicles more before selling them.
