Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) is recalling 158,651 model year 2011-2016 Outlander Sport vehicles.
Water may enter between the hood and windshield and cause the front wiper link ball joint to corrode, possibly resulting in the wiper link separating and the wipers becoming inoperative.
Loss of wiper function can reduce visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rod of the wiper link and the wiper motor crank arm, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 10, 2018.
Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-18-004.
