Mitsubishi Motors North America is recalling 21,758 model year 2016 Outlander and Outlander Sport vehicles.

The rust prevention coating on the rear brake operating shafts could have been peeled off during the assembly process. As a result, water entering the rear brake caliper boot may cause the parking brake operating shafts to corrode and possibly bind.

If the parking brake operating shafts bind, the parking brakes may not engage or disengage fully. If the parking brakes do not engage properly, the vehicle could roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear brake caliper assemblies free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin January 25, 2021.

Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at (888) 648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-20-005.
