Mitsubishi is recalling certain 2013 model year Outlander Sport crossovers for a potential suspension issue that may lead to difficulty steering or braking.

A notice on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website puts the number of vehicles potentially affected by the recall at 305.

According to the NHTSA bulletin, affected vehicles were built from January 17, 2013 through January 25, 2013.

The problem

At issue is the possibility that an improper weld on the front left strut stabilizer may fail, causing damage to the brake hose or tire. If this happens, the driver could experience difficulty in steering and/or braking. Both increase the risk of a crash.
