Mitsubishi is recalling almost 100,000 vehicles from 2015-2016 due to continuous variable transmissions, or CVTs, that could cause stalling, leading to accidents, injury and death. The recall includes 2015-16 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport models, and 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer models.
This defect could be deadly, with CVTs in Mitsubishi models momentarily losing signal and delaying acceleration. If you own an affected vehicle, or have been in an accident involving a Mitsubishi Outlander, Outlander Sport or Lancer, contact our law offices today.
If you or a loved one have been injured while driving a 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage, contact the Law Offices of Serna & Associates. We have recovered millions in damages in cases for Mitsubishi SUV and vehicle negligence and defects, demanding the company take responsibility for your losses.

SUVs typically have a significantly higher center of gravity than other passenger vehicles. When a driver needs to make a sudden turn or swerve to avoid a road obstacle, the higher center of gravity can cause the SUV to roll over. Newer model SUVs have advanced traction or electronic stability control (ESC) systems as standard equipment. This technology enables better traction on slippery surfaces or during cornering, often preventing rollover accidents.
Unfortunately, millions of SUVs lacking ESC systems remain in use on the road. Once an SUV begins to roll over, other defects in the vehicle can make the accident deadly. These defects include insufficient roof strength (leading to roof collapse), defective door latches, defective seat belts or seat backs, the lack of laminated safety glass in windows, and the lack of curtain airbags.
SUV rollover injury lawsuits against Mitsubishi charge that Mitsubishi vehicles are too narrow and tall, elevating the center of gravity and increasing the risk of rollover, particularly since many Mitsubishi SUVs lack ESC systems. In addition, lawsuits charge that several Mitsubishi models lack sufficient roof strength. In rollover accidents involving these model vehicles, the roof collapsed causing additional massive head, spine and back injuries.
In 2016 alone, Serna & Associates have recovered more than $3 million for innocent victims involved in Mitsubishi-related car and SUV accidents.
Mitsubishi developed its ESC system in the 1990’s. Lawsuit complaints charge that Mitsubishi should have made its ESC system standard equipment in all of its SUVs by 2000.
Instead, Mitsubishi waited the better part of a decade to add ESC as a standard feature. Only by 2008 did all new Mitsubishi SUVs come equipped with ESC. Some Mitsubishi SUVs were sold with ESC prior to 2008, but only as an optional feature. The technology was not added as standard feature to new Mitsubishi vehicles until 2008.
