Mitsubishi Recall SR-06-005: Gear Shift Key Lock Cable

2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse

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.

Power Train — Automatic Transmission

Summary
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.
Actions
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.
