2005 Mitsubishi Galant FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY NHTSA Campaign #08V454000
Summary: 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.
Actions: 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. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V454000 »
2005 Mitsubishi Galant ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION NHTSA Campaign #08V276000
Summary: Mitsubishi is recalling 73,000 MY 2004-2006 gallant passenger vehicles. During vehicle use, the ignition key interlock cable (which is a component of the interlock system) may allow the interlocking cam to fall forward and allow the ignition key to be removed from the ignition switch when the gearshift mechanism is not 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.
Actions: Dealers will inspect and correct these vehicles for the reported condition. The recall began on September 2, 2008. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V276000 »
2005 Mitsubishi Galant SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:MASTER CYLINDER NHTSA Campaign #05V409000
Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with anti-lock brakes, the brake master cylinder, which controls the fluid pressure to the vehicle's brakes, may allow brake fluid to bypass internally during stopping.
Consequence: This may result in a partial loss of braking, increased stopping distances, and could lead to a vehicle crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder. The recall began on October 3, 2005. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V409000 »
