Mitsubishi is recalling 3,181 model-year 2011 Outlander Sport compact crossovers due to a problem with the panoramic glass roof that could allow it to detach, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between Aug. 26, 2010, and March 29, 2011. The glass roof may have been installed without the application of primer before the adhesive. Without primer, the roof may detach from the vehicle, resulting in a road hazard for other vehicles.
Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the panoramic glass to determine whether primer was used; if no primer is found, the glass will be reinstalled for free. The automaker has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners can call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820, NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
