THE SUNROOF GLASS EXPLODED OUT OF OUR CAR WHILE WE WERE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY IN IDAHO. THE SUNROOF WAS CLOSED BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN RAINING AND IT WAS COLD. MITSUBISHI HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH SUNROOF GLASS DETACHING IN OutlanderS FROM 2007-2010. WHEN WE CONTACTED MITSUBISHI THEY INFORMED US THAT THE GLASS FLYING OUT OF OUR SUNROOF WAS NOT A SAFETY PROBLEM OR A MANUFACTURER?S DEFECT EVEN THOUGH IT WAS RULED AS SUCH IN PREVIOUS YEARS.

2020 Mitsubishi OUTLANDER SPORT
Parts: FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE
  • Date of Incident: Sep-22, 2020
  • Date complaint filed: 13:29 Nov-23, 2020

When driving the vehicle and a approaching another vehicle, person bicycle or object, the fcm, forward collision mitigation system is suppose to slow the vehicle down and eventually stop the vehicle and give and audible alert. It does nothing. I took the vehicle to cerritos mitsubishi in california and asked them to fix the problem. They connected the vehicle to their computer for diagnosis and a code came back under system name: fcm/ldw/ahb, and under diagnostic trouble code c1809 (system temporary not available). I was told by the service manager that they needed me to leave the vehicle and they needed to call mitsubishi to find out what that code was for. They call me back that evening and said the vehicle was ready to be picked up and said it was working fine. I went out on a test drive with the head mechanic the fcm was still doing the same thing and he said he could not find a problem with the system. I suspect that they just cleared the code and gave the vehicle back to me. I took the vehicle to puenta hills mitsubishi (where i had purchased the vehicle from) and left it over the weekend. I was told by the service manager that they needed me to leave the vehicle and they needed to call mitsubishi to find out what that code was for, again. They call me back that evening and said the vehicle was ready to be picked up and said they drove it and could not find a problem. The fcm (forward collision mitigation) still does not slow the vehicle down and eventually stop the vehicle or give and audible alert. It does nothing. Recall number 18v621000 recall date 09/14/2018 electrical system: software mitsubishi motors north america, inc. (mmna) is recalling certain 2018 mitsubishi outlander sport vehicles equipped with a forward collision mitigation (fcm) consequence if the safety systems do not function as intended, it can increase the risk of a crash

The seat belt on the back passage seat doesn't come out. It like that buckle is too short, which make it hard to buckle up.

I was driving on the freeway, and suddenly my car began to jerk, as if it was hiccuping, and refused to accelerate for a number seconds. It labored to make it home. It was dangerous because it would accelerate and then jerk causing traffics to abruptly halt without warning, by the time i got home it was stuck on 1st gear, and now won? T even reverse. My car is not drive able. Something is wrong with the transmission it thru a transmission code. I think it might be a recall associated with this. I believe the constant velocity transmissions are recalled, my vehicle has a cvt.
