Mitsubishi Motors North America has issued a recall for its 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport crossovers due to a problem detected with the seat-mounted airbags. It is understood, that there is a wiring issue with the driver side leather seats, which may result in an airbag failing to deploy. 

“In the affected vehicles, the driver side seat-mounted airbag wiring may have been improperly routed during the leather seat cover installation process,” said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. “If the wiring is routed incorrectly, using the seat height adjustment may damage the wiring, resulting in illumination of the airbag warning light. Subsequently, in the event of a crash necessitation airbag deployment, the driver side seat-mounts airbag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury.”

A total of 733 units of the Outlander Sport SUV that were built from July 20, 2012 through May 29, 2013 have been affected by the said recall. Mitsubishi dealers will inspect the wiring of the driver side seat-mounted airbags and re-route the wiring, if necessary. If the wire is damaged, the seat-mounted airbag will be replaced. The automaker says it is unaware of any injuries and/or accidents related to the recall.
