Build Date:
Numbers: 519
Defect: It is possible for the engine wiring harness to chaff on a security bracket. If this is allowed to continue, this could result in a short circuit in the starter motor circuit, which can cause the starter to operate whilst the vehicle is being driven. This will cause the starter to overheat and possibly cause a fire.
Action: Recall the affected vehicles to inspect and insulate the wiring if required.
Launch Date: 18 August 2010
Recall: No. 9 of 10
Recall Ref: R/2009/037
Exact Model: Outlander GS45X with CVT/AT
Build Date: 1 January 2008 to 8 April 2009
Numbers: 180
Defect: It has been identified that after the vehicle has been stationary for some length of time, increased pressure may need to be applied to the footbrake pedal to bring the vehicle to a stop. This is due to insufficient vacuum assistance within the brake booster due to a failure of the check valve. It should be noted that on the second application of the footbrake the check valve will operate as designed and the brakes will operate as normal.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have the brake booster check valve replaced.
Launch Date: 15 July 2009
