Mitsubishi Recall SR-09-002: Brake Booster Check Valve

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer

This may temporarily increase the stopping distance of the vehicle and therefore increase the risk of a crash.

Service Brakes, Air — Supply — Check Valve

Summary
Mitsubishi is recalling 39,711 MY 2008-2009 outlander and lacer vehicles. Incorrect material composition of the brake booster check valve may cause the check valve to stick closed when the engine is shut off. When the vehicle is re-started and put into motion, under certain driving conditions (very slow vehicle maneuvers), there may be insufficient initial braking assist.
Actions
Dealers will replace the brake booster check valve free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.
