The recall is made due to the fault in transmissions or CVT’s of all these vehicles. The CVT is actually constant velocity transmission which is used by the company.
The documentation that was submitted by Mitsubishi to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the recall is being made due to the risk of accidents, according to Automotive News.
These accidents can be caused by an acceleration delay that can happen due to momentarily loss of signals to the transmission. This can happen during the car is being driven or is parked. If the problem persists, then the chances of accident are highly increased.
It is currently unknown if any accidents or injuries happened due to this transmission problem. The fix suggested by the company is to correct the CVTs for free at dealerships from where cars were being bought.
If you have any of these cars which are affected then you can wait for the official email or letter to come to you. Along with that you can contact at MMNA customer service as the recall began on August 15.
The dealers from where these cars were bought should be able to fix the problem in an easy manner and all for free as it is being recommended by the company that the fix shall be provided free of cost to all customers.
