NOTICED THAT THE CROSSMEMBER HAS ROTTED AWAY AT THE WELD AND NOT SAFE TO DRIVE. ALL OTHER COMPONENTS ARE OK. THERE IS A RECALL FOR 2008 V6 MODELS FOR THE CORROSION, BUT NOT FOR 2008 4 CYL?? IT USES THE SAME DEFECTIVE PARTS BACK IN 2008.

10/6/2018 - DEERFIELD, NH
THERE'S A RECALL ON THE FRONT CROSS MEMBER/SUB-FRAME,WHICH IS IN GOOD CONDITION,BUT NOT THE BACK ONE. WHICH MINE JUST ACTUALLY RIPPED! IT STARTED DRIVING ODD,LIKE THE BACK END DOESN'T STAY BEHIND IT. WOULD KIND OF SHUDDER AT TAKEOFF, AND SOUNDS AWFUL! ESPECIALLY NOTICEABLE GOING SLOWLY ON A DIRT DRIVEWAY WITH BUMPS.EVEN WITH BRAND NEW SUSPENSION,TIRES,CV-SHAFTS,BEARINGS,EVERYTHING.IT STILL DID IT.THEN YESTERDAY IT STARTED REALLY BANGING AND THUMPING UNDERNEATH.IT WAS HARD TO FIGURE OUT BECAUSE IT WOULD HAPPEN AT DIFFERENT TIMES.SOMETIMES CORNERS,SOMETIMES GOING STRAIGHT,ESPECIALLY WHEN THE BODY WOULD TWIST. SO I STOPPED AND CHECKED. I NOTICED THE VEHICLE WAS DROPPED AT LEAST AN INCH ON ONE SIDE. IT HAS BRAND NEW STRUTS IN IT, SO I LOOKED CLOSER. ON THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR, WHERE THE LATERAL CONTROL ARM ATTACHES TO IT,THE ACTUAL SUB FRAME/CROSS MEMBER IS TORN! IT IS WAY TO NEW TO HAVE THE SUB-FRAME ROTTED SO BAD THAT IT JUST RIPS.OBVIOUSLY MITSUBISHI FORGOT TO TREAT THAT CROSS-MEMBER AS WELL! OR JUST GOT THE TWO BACKWARDS IN THE RECALL? THIS IS THE 2008 OUTLANDER V6,4WD,XLS. ALSO,NOT A SAFETY ISSUE,BUT STILL NOT NORMAL FOR THE AGE, ALL MY PAINT ON THE FRONT BUMPER IS JUST FALLING OFF.IN CHUNKY FLAKES?

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

8/30/2018 - BRICK, NJ
LOW BEAM HEADLAMPS HAVE BEEN GOING COMPLETELY OUT. THIS HAPPENED WHEN IN MOTION ON A HIGHWAY . IT IS DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE AND BE SEEN WHEN THIS HAPPENED. I HAVE TAKEN THE VEHICLE TO A MITSUBISHI DEALER FOR REPAIR BUT THE PROBLEM HAS RECURRED 4 TIMES. I HAVE BEEN TOLD A RELAY WAS BURNT OUT THREE TIMES AND HAD BEEN REPLACED. ANOTHER TIME I WAS TOLD THERE WAS AN INTERNAL SHORT. USUALLY THE REPAIR ONLY LASTS 3-4 WEEKS AND THEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT AGAIN. THIS LAST TIME WAS ONLY 2.5 WEEKS SINCE IT WAS LAST REPAIRED. THIS HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING AND NOT TO MENTION DANGEROUS. THIS HAS OCCURRED 8/29/18, 8/10/18, 7/11/18, 6/~13/18.
