Software issue sparks Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recall

Mitsubishi’s electric SUV recalled to fix fault…

A recall of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUVs has been initiated after a possible software issue was identified.

Affected MY14 and MY14.5 Outlander PHEVs, all the recalled vehicles carry a VIN between JMFXDGG2WEZ000101 and JMFXDGG2WEZ002023.

Those vehicles were sold between the 19th of September 2013 and the 2nd of March 2017.

Being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the recall notice advises that due to improper engine software, EV software and spark plug specification, the petrol engine may shut down unexpectedly.

This will limit the vehicle to EV drive mode only, with no electric charge by the engine.

What are the hazards?

The EV battery may discharge resulting in lack of power and risk of an accident.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all known affected Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV owners by mail and advise them to present their vehicle to their preferred dealer.

The dealers will rectify the issue by installing revised software and spark plugs.

Further info is also available direct from Mitsubishi Motors Australia on 1300 1312 11 or local dealerships.
