Just the Facts:
  • Mitsubishi Motors North America is recalling 3,181 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sports because the panoramic glass roof may detach from the vehicle.
  • The panoramic glass roof may have been installed without primer being applied before the adhesive.
  • Mitsubishi said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the recall.

WASHINGTON — Mitsubishi Motors North America is recalling 3,181 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sports because the panoramic glass roof may detach from the vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The panoramic glass roof may have been installed without primer being applied before the adhesive," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "Without primer being used, the panoramic glass roof may have reduced adhesion, possibly allowing the glass roof to detach from the vehicle, resulting in a road hazard to other vehicles."

Mitsubishi said it is not aware of any injuries or accidents related to the recall.

The affected vehicles were built from August 26, 2010 through March 29, 2011.

Mitsubishi said it has received two customer complaints from unidentified foreign countries that the panoramic glass roof became detached.

"No related claims have been made in the U.S. market," the automaker said in documentation filed with federal safety regulators.

Mitsubishi dealers will inspect the panoramic glass to see if primer was installed. If primer is not present, the glass will be reinstalled.

Mitsubishi has not set a date for the recall. Owners can contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820.

Edmunds says: Owners can wait for their notification letter from Mitsubishi before taking their vehicles in for service in this recall or speak to their dealer directly.
