2013-2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recalled for engine fix

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 11

The pre-facelift Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been recalled this week, with 1654 units potentially affected by an engine fault which could shut off the petrol motor inadvertently.

Mitsubishi reports that improper engine software, electric vehicle (EV) software and spark plug specification are the cause of the issue, which could turn off the plug-in hybrid system’s petrol engine unexpectedly during use, limiting the vehicle to electric power only.

If the condition occurs, the battery could go flat – as no charge is coming from the engine – which could leave drivers stranded and at risk of having an accident.

The recalled Outlander PHEV SUVs were sold from 19 September 2013 through 2 March 2017, though the vehicles in question are officially dubbed as MY14 and MY14.5.

Affected models are within the VIN range JMFXDGG2WEZ000101 ~ JMFXDGG2WEZ002023.

Owners of the recalled units will be contacted by Mitsubishi Australia, and are encouraged to visit their local dealer to have their Outlander PHEV inspected and repaired with revised software and spark plugs.
