2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE, STRUCTURE:BODY:HATCHBACK/LIFTGATE:HINGE AND ATTACHMENTS NHTSA Campaign #16V867000
Summary: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured August 26, 2010, to June 1, 2012, and 2016 Outlander Sport vehicles manufactured January 11, 2016, to July 8, 2016.

Consequence: If the outer tube corrodes, there may be a rapid loss of the gas used to provide lift assistance, causing the lift gate to fall suddenly, increasing the risk of injury.
Actions: MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the lift gate supports, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-16-011.

2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL NHTSA Campaign #12V001000
Summary: Mitsubishi 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: The 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.
Actions: Dealers 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.
