What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:

  • 2019-2020 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle)

The seat belt for the right side second-row seat on affected vehicles may have been assembled incorrectly, NHTSA said. An incorrectly assembled seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Mitsubishi is notifying owners and dealers will replace the right-side second-row seat belt, free of charge. This recall began on July 14, 2020.

Are Mitsubishi Outlanders Reliable?

The Mitsubishi Outlander generally receives high scores on major reliability ratings. RepairPal gives it 4.0 out of 5.0, ranking it 8th out of 26 vehicles in its class. However, some Mitsubishi Outlander models have also received below-average reviews.

The Mitsubishi Outlander ranked 7th from the bottom on J.D. Power’s Dependability Survey for 2017, recording a higher number of complaints compared to other SUVs (182 issues per 100 vehicles, which is higher than the average 156).

What are the Most Common Problems with the Mitsubishi Outlander?

In addition to the seat belt issue listed in the above recall, some of the top Mitsubishi Outlander problems include premature brake wear, automatic transmission failure, and a failed blower motor. The Mitsubishi Outlander years to avoid are the 2014-2018 models.
