Due to issues with the brake booster check valve and the possibility that a re-started Mitsubishi Lancer or Mitsubishi Outlander could have little power brake assist when put back into motion, NHTSA says Mitsubishi will Recall 39,711 Lancers and Outlanders from the 2008 and 2009 model years.
Mitsubishi dealers will be replacing brake booster check valves free of charge. This will ensure Lancers and Outlanders against a sticking valve that remains stuck even when the engine is reignited, thus decreasing the assist given to drivers by power brakes.
