Mitsubishi will be contacting the owners of certain 2015 Outlander Sports vehicles, about a problem affecting the power train system. The hose clamps on the continuously variable transmission (CVT) may not have been released during the assembly process and could disconnect and drain fluid. While the subject transmission hoses are not located near the exhaust manifold or the battery, transmission fluid in the presence of an ignition source could present a fire hazard. Drivers will be alerted to a problem through an illuminated warning indicator and/ or the vehicle may begin to vibrate slightly.

Dealers will inspect the hose clamps and correct their installation as necessary. Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi’s number for this recall is SR-16-005 and the NHTSA campaign number is 16V-548.
