Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling one 2022 Outlander vehicle. A software programming error with a welding robot may have caused the vehicle’s center pillar to be welded incorrectly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) numbers 214, “Side Impact Protection” 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages” and 216, “Roof Crush Resistance.”



MMNA will repurchase and replace the affected vehicle, free of charge. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-21-009.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to


Check if your Mitsubishi has a Recall


Chronology :

September 14, 2021, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) was notified by Asteer that some side center pillar reinforcements were partially manufactured to Australian specifications. MMC immediately began inspecting the center pillar reinforcements on all potentially affected vehicles in MMC’s possession.

September – October 2021, MMC conducted computer analysis to determine if the partial Australian specification side center pillar reinforcements would still meet FMVSS and the potential other consequences.

October 14, 2021, MMC determined that although initial analysis indicated the affected vehicle would meet FMVSS, out of an abundance of caution, a field action was necessary in the US, and advised Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) to conduct a non-compliance recall.
