On Friday, November 18, 2016, I was driving my wife's 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander sport. As I was pulling into a parking spot at the harris teeter grocery store located at 2019 S glenburnie road, new bern, nc. I was pulling into a parking spot on the left. Therefore, I had my foot on the brake to slowly pull into the spot. As I continued to move in a forward motion with my foot on the brake to come to a stop, the car suddenly lurched forward. I had not pulled completely into the spot at the time, so my foot would have still been on the brake. When our car lurched it then hit the car in front of us. The left side of our car impacted the left side of the car parked in the spot in front of the spot we were pulling into causing that car to roll out of its parking spot into the middle of the aisle in the parking lot. The car that was hit had quite a bit of damage to the front left fender of the car and the car had to be towed as it could not be driven. Our car's left fender also suffered damage and the radiator was busted. Our car also had to be towed from the lot. We are having the vehicle checked to see what made it lurch. And honestly, I will be afraid to drive the vehicle when it is fixed if they for some reason say they don't find a problem with it. I am uploading pictures of the damage done to both cars. I also received a citation for the accident and now have to go to court to clear this up. I will also be filing this complaint directly with Mitsubishi motors. This was the first occurrence, but I wanted to report this before a situation like this happens again, possibly causing more injury or death.

The contact owns a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander. While driving 30 mph, the acceleration seized and would not respond after a stop. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the acceleration was normal. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The failure occurred everyday since the vehicle was purchased from a used car lot. The approximate failure mileage was 23,000.

I'm backing up on a reverse mode and a slightly elevated rv parking to get some heavy items next to my drive way, I slowly moving and try to aligned it to the pavement I notice the backup camera didn't work and press my feet to the brake then after I release it accelerate past backward hitting the wooden fench and zero ground the 6 foot shed, causing the back body part of the car wreck and I end up on a 3 bricks high planter. I have some history in the past that the following day that I got the car from the dealer I returned it to them because I heared a popping sound on the engine part when I stop the engine, they said its just normal but with all the cars that I had I never experience this so unusual and the static on the car seat everytime I come out of the car I even transfer the static feel when somebody touch me I and after a week they put leather seat it is still the same what I did I put a rug on my seat that lessen the static. Everytime I bring the car on all the complaints they just ignore it and telling me its just normal and because I never bought any brand new car except Mitsubishi since 1997 so my trust is still there until this crash happend to me and first time in my entire life its good thing it happens with in my property what if this malfunction happens outside and I hurt somebody that accident was traumatic to me I don't want to drive that car anymore I don't know what will happen next. I file complain with them, then after 3 weeks they don't want to take responsibility and advise me to just claim accident on my insurance. I ask the service manager to please email me a copy of their investigation and a written report on their advise on me. Michael of Mitsubishi anaheim is hesitant to give me any written report on the test they've done and advice they want me to do.
