July 28, 2017—Mitsubishi Motors North America recalled 2007–2013 Outlander vehicles.

In the affected vehicles, water might seep between the hood and the windshield and leak into the wiper-motor-breathing hole. As a result, the windshield-wiper motor might corrode and stop working, which might decrease visibility and increase the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi Motors North America will notify owners, and dealers will replace the windshield-wiper motor for free. The recall was expected to begin July 28, 2017.

For more information, owners may call Mitsubishi Motors North America at 888/648-7820. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
