Vehicle has delay and/or hesitation when accelerating. I was driving on the highway at 60mph trying to pass another vehicle, but the car would not accelerate after i changed lanes. Finally, after several seconds, the car responded and jumped quickly up to speed. After this occurrence, it's now happening on side streets as well going as slow as 10-20mph.

Vehicle started having rough idle at about 70,000 miles when air conditioner would be turned on. Rmp's would fluctuate between 500-1000. Now at about 90,000 miles vehicle has rough idle whether ac is on or not. Vehicle has stalled when changing gears, while waiting at a stop or when sitting in traffic. Today 3/24/21 vehicle stalled while entering an intersection which could have caused an accident. Vehicle also has a hesitation when trying to accelerate whether from a stop or from a coasting speed. Vehicle was taken to dealership on october 2019 for cvt8-ecm reflash as per recall but it only solved the acceleration problem for a couple of months. There should be another recall on this vehicle as these problems can cause personal injury/accident.

Received recall documentation in august 2020, called to get information (spoke to amber). Told to call and make an appointment to get the recall taken care of. Called and got an appointment for september 26, 2020 at 8am at 165 lincoln highway, fairless hills pa 19030. On september 25, i receive a call that they ran out of the recall parts and have to cancel my appointment, they will call when they're back in stock. I called in november, december and just last week to find out they still haven't received any of the front cross members to replace them (and she said there are several people still waiting). In my recall letter it states " a detached front control arm can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash"

I? Ve had my routine maintenance done on this vehicle since i financed it back in june of 2019 which was at 47k miles. There was no issues, i had my last maintenance done in october at 70k miles. My transmission showed no signs of going out , there? S no leakage of any sort. It just decided saturday, january 2 of 2021 that it was just going to go out. I took it to the dealership january 5th, and he told me it? Ll be $7035. 09 to replace. I feel as though there should be a recall on this transmission just like the recalls for the 2016 models. The dash just now says transmission service required. It was so sudden! I was at 35mph and the car began to shudder upon acceleration while driving saturday. So, i had to drive at least 10miles back home at 20mph, because i wasn? T sure of what the issue was at that moment. I had a mechanic check the transmission fluid and he says that there wasn? T a drop of fluid in there. When i go get maintenance done i am trusting them to make sure i have everything checked in order for me to fell trust and be safe while driving a vehicle that i financed from them. I could? Ve had a accident or anything. They? Ve only checked what they were paid to do and that was the oil change without ever checking my transmission fluid. Theres no holes nor any leakage the code ran and says p084a transmission has internal damage. I? Ve replaced the windshield wiper twice and the takes a while to defrost the wiper blades move slowly when turned to the max when theres a storm.

On december 23, 2020 i was driving aprx 30 mph. I break to go over a train track bringing my speed to roughly 20mph. I heard a noise that sounded like metal but i figured it was from the train tracks. There was a wide bend a few feet up the way. I get my speed to 40mph and start going around the bend. I slow down and try turning to turn the wheel. I could turn the wheel but the car was not moving in the direction i was turning. I press the break but i began to hydroplane causing me and my 3 children to crash into a huge ditch drain. Upon farther inspection the tower identified the cause of the accident was my wheel alignment. My wheels were not pointing the same direction meaning something with the steering broke (possibly the noise i heard. ) i have researched since this day and found that other people have had the same issues with their outlanders starting in 2008.

The vehicle was traveling at approximately 63 mph on a rural blacktop, when a white tail deer ran into the side of the vehicle where the drivers side front and rear door meet. The collision caused both door windows to shatter, and the doors are dented so bad they cannot be opened. The side airbags on the vehicle did not deploy even after taking a direct hit from the deer.

Transmission issues/ failure at 116,000 miles with known issues from others online with the same issue/failure and replacement for? Specialty? Cvt transmission unreasonably prices to replace. These transmission issues are not discussed at point of sale (which is the responsibility of salesman) but also no disclosure from mitsubishi. These transmissions should not fail so soon. When driving issues when shifting not as normal and there is no warning light that engages until right before your transmission fails. It is not safe! *dt consumer stated her vin was not part of the recall. *jb

My greatest concern is the engine stalling while driving, new battery draining so quickly , the vehicle shaking while idle then shuts off. I cannot understand how my vehicle was not added to the engine stall recall even with these problems replicating what mitsubishi identifies in there past recalls. This is very dangerous because macanics or diagnostic computers cannot identify problems with the car but after driving it for a good while or maybe a few hours the car could just shut off in the middle of no where in a highway which has already happened to me endangering me and my family. I write to nhtsa today so that my vehicle as urgently as possible can be included in a investigation for this vehicle to be included in mitsubishi's recall.
