These parts were on recall, I set up my appointment with the dealership. Called to verify appointment and was told it was cancelled, the recalled air bag parts are also on recall. This is unacceptable, I have children and grandchildren that ride in my truck. Mitsubishi said the date the new air bags will be available are not available at this time. 2006 Mitsubishi Raider air bags:frontal:driver side inflator module NHTSA campaign #15V313000 2006 Mitsubishi Raider electrical system:ignition:switch NHTSA campaign #14V795000 my truck isn't included in this recall. Its not recognizing the keys or the VIN #. it also won't start sometimes and I have to put it in neutral to get it to start. Automatic transmission- after starting the vehicle, there was a loud noise while shifting into drive/reverse. Later while driving 70 mph on normal dry roads, the vehicle engine stalled. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer who determined that the gear box was faulty, and a common problem. I also have this issue with this truck. Tsb #0635001 NHTSA id #10019046 summary: Shudder while braking. Vibration or shudder in the brake pedal when the brakes are applied at highway speeds.- I also have this issue. Tsb #0516001 NHTSA id #10018781 summary: No engine crank - loss of communications with front control module. - my truck has this too. Tsb #137 NHTSA id #10021743 summary: Reprogramming the PCM drivability or sensitivity issues can be corrected. My check engine light will come on for this issue. As well as for transmission has low voltage and transmission is too hot. Last time my check engine light came on I have 11 transmission codes. I drove it for another 2 days and the check engine light went off. Would cost me a fortune to run it to be repaired every time the check engine light comes on. Which is about 20 times a month.

Got truck May 2007 from a Toyota dealer with 15K miles after driving it for a day with no problems. After papers were signed, I started the engine and the check engine light was on. The Toyota dealership told me to take it to a Mitsubishi dealership since it was still under warranty. The engine ran fine. The following day the check engine light was no longer on. The Mitsubishi dealership said it may have been caused by the gas cap being loosened by the Toyota dealership when they filled the gas tank at the time of purchase. Shortly afterward, the check engine light came on while driving 35-40 mph and immediately ran with a rough idle and bucked when accelerating. The following morning with light still on, but no rough idle or bucking, Mitsubishi dealership tests determined it was the #2 spark plug, which they corrected. Several days later it happened again. The following day the check engine light was no longer on & engine ran fine. This happened 3 or 4 times a year through 2009. I noticed that if the cruise control was on when the check engine light came on, the cruise control light would turn off and no longer function. After turning the engine off and restarting it, it no longer had rough idle or bucked on acceleration; however, the check engine light remained on and the cruise control light would still not come on or function until a day of two later when the check engine light was no longer on. A couple of months ago, 2 to 5 minutes after starting engine in am & while driving approx. 35-40 mph, engine killed & check engine light appeared. Engine restarted with rough idle, bucking with acceleration & the cruise control would not function. Two weeks ago, while signaling a left turn, the dash blinking lights began blinking on the right & the check engine light appeared, engine killed, etc. Just happened again. Getting dangerous... help!

2006 Mitsubishi Raider @ 42,000 miles. This vehicle has been nothing but problems with no solutions. First I had electrical problems, lights and dash cutting off, no speedometer, radio would cut off. Once it wouldn't crank, I had to have it towed to the dealership, where they said I was missing a fuse, apparently it fell out while in route to dealership, because I checked all of them before I called tow truck, checked with test light, all were working, all were in place.......50.00 for the tow, 40.00+ to replace a fuse. Constantly uses brake fluid.....took to dealer and they said it was low on brake fluid.....probably because it was leaking all over the drum, dealer did not fix. Had some kind of ECU replaced for electronics, still didn't fix problem. Trucks rear brakes began to drag and lock up. Called dealer, they said my series of VIN numbers wasn't included in there recall, even though it was doing the same as the so called recalled vehicles. Eventually I guess it broke, because it hasn't been dragging the brakes, although there is a large brake fluid leak on drivers side rear tire, and now my rear end(hog head)(gearcase) is leaking gear oil. I just don't understand why there are no solutions to Mitsubishi's mistakes unless they are resolved from my wallet. I guess they are only liable if more than 100 people are killed in accidents happen.......Toyota stood up and fixed their problem.......how come Mitsubishi cant? thoroughly disgusted by dealers and their service department........or lack of service department. I have had verbal confrontations with all service managers, even contacted Mitsubishi main office, still at no prevail.......so I guess I will drive it to the wheels fall off, shouldn't be much longer, rear end is leaking fairly bad now. I can't afford to have it fixed, even though they should be held responsible for their mistakes.....

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Raider that has electrical issues, sometimes the dash lights go out, all the gauges quit working, including speedometer and the radio cuts off.....sometimes daily, weekly, monthly. Even after taking to dealer numerous times. Rear brakes have been locking up and 'dragging' upon stopping sometimes, hasn't done it lately, I think the part may have finally broke. There is a recall on this item, but dealer says my truck was not in that series of serial numbers the defect was found in, although it does the same thing as the recalled trucks made the same year as mine. Now the rear brake drum is leaking brake fluid. Truck has 36, 000 on it, dealers have been no help whatsoever on any of the issues.
