When you get behind the wheel of your car, you want to trust that both the engine and braking systems will react accordingly, should you need to suddenly accelerate or stop your vehicle. Unfortunately, many drivers of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV have found themselves in dangerous situations due to unresponsive brakes and overheating engines. From stalling engines to brakes that do not engage when drivers depress them, consumers are concerned about how safe the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander really is.
According to one complaint, their 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander stalled and lost power on more than one occasion. Another driver described how, when they pressed the gas pedal after the light turned green, the vehicle stalls and refuses to move. In order to get the car to finally engage, the driver must remove their foot from the gas pedal several times before the car eventually responds. One owner reported a harrowing incident in which they were driving along at a speed of 35 mph, when several lights suddenly illuminated. When the driver pushed the brake pedal to slow down and move the car to the side of the road, the brakes did not respond, causing the driver to crash into a cement barrier. As a result, the driver suffered injuries to the neck and back, requiring medical attention. Although Mitzubishi has issued a recall to address engines that tend to stall or overheat, many consumers are still waiting for their replacements.
