Recall: No. 7 of 14

Exact Model: Outlander (GF6W)
Build Date: Various
Numbers: 385
Defect: One or both of the following may occur: 1) While driving through a tunnel with the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) operating the ACC control unit may judge that the tunnel wall is a vehicle in front. This can result in the ACC system automatically applying the brakes to reduce vehicle speed. 2) Due to a calculation error in the ACC/Front Collision Mitigation (FCM) control unit ACC failure and Active Stability Control (ASC) failure may be displayed in the combination meter along with an audible warning alarm. The ACC and FCM systems will not operate when these warnings are displayed.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected to rewrite the ACC/FCM Electronic Control Unit software with modified software.

Build Date: July 2010 to January 2012
Numbers: 2100
Defect: Due to a nonconformity in the manufacture of the alternator pulley (free wheel type) the contact surface of the pulley might be deformed. In use the tightening torque of the alternator pulley can decrease resulting in the pulley detaching from the alternator. Should this happen the driver will notice reduced power steering assistance and the warning lamp for the charging system will illuminate.
Action: Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and ascertain which alternator is fitted. Where an unmodified alternator is fitted replace the alternator.

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.
