Mitsubishi recalling 166k cars, crossovers over stall risk

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Mitsubishi is recalling 165,923 vehicles in the US because it’s possible for the drive belt to detach from their engines, potentially causing a stall. Specifically, the campaign covers 2008-2011 model-year examples of the Lancer, Lancer Evolution (pictured above) and Outlander as well as the 2009-2011 Lancer Sportback and 2011 Outlander Sport. All of the affected models use some version of the brand’s 4B1 four-cylinder engine.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the engine pulley can wear causing the drive belt to slip off. If this happens, the alternator, cooling fan and hydraulic power steering can all stop working, and obviously, any of those things could make driving unsafe. However, if the belt detaches, then a warning light should come on in the cabin.

To fix the problem, Mitsubishi dealers will replace the original belt with a redesigned rubber part and will inspect the pulley. If worn, it’ll also be replaced free of charge.

According to Mitsubishi’s defect notice, the first report of this problem was in 2010 in Ukraine. After that, it began monitoring the problem and eventually instated this recall. Scroll down to read the full details.

Nissan recalls over 220k Altima sedans over hoods that could fly open

Filed under: , , ,

2013 Nissan Altima

Nissan will be recalling 220,000 Altima sedans, according to a new recall bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Apparently, model year 2013 Altimas built between March 6, 2012 and February 28, 2013 are at risk of their hoods flying open at speed.

According to NHTSA, debris, corrosion and interference between the hood’s inner panel and the secondary latch lever could bind the mechanism in the unlatched position. While this in itself won’t cause the hood to fly open – there’s still a primary latch that needs released from within the cabin – it presents a potentially dangerous situation should the primary latch be accidentally released.

Nissan will begin notifying owners of the affected vehicles, who will need to report to their local dealer for free repairs. Scroll down for the full bulletin from the government safety watchdog.

Male Baby Boomers most likely to drive connected cars, according to Nielsen study

Nielsen Connected Car SurveyThere’s no denying that new cars are becoming increasingly packed with tech that connects drivers to the internet, even if it can be distracting. Whether it’s as simple as streaming audio or turning the interior into a wifi hotspot, these connected car systems appear here to stay. So who actually uses this stuff? The survey-meisters at Nielsen have issued the results of a new study that sheds light on the subject, and some of the results aren’t what you might expect.

The analysis is based on surveys from 5,985 people who consider themselves “extremely, very, or somewhat interested” in things like connected homes, automotive technology and wearable tech.

You might presume young whippersnappers to be the ones most likely to drive vehicles with this cutting-edge telematics technology, but as it turns out, it’s the opposite. Of those with who own a vehicle with connected features, 42 percent of them are 55 or older. They’re also 58 percent men, well educated and 37 percent make over $100,000 a year. The most important parts of the tech to them (full data at right) are crash notifications, Internet-enabled navigation, safety alerts and vehicle diagnostics.

Of course, this might simply be a case of youthful drivers not being able to afford the latest and greatest technology. Of the people considering buying a new car in the next two years, 39 percent of them want it to be a model with such built-in connectivity features. However, their reasons appear somewhat frivolous with 60 percent of them just wanting to experience the systems, 58 percent wanting to entertain passengers and 43 percent believing the systems might boost productivity.

Nielsen’s study suggests that automakers need to make sure their tech is usable by the entire swath of the population, especially for the older drivers who are most likely to actually have the systems in their vehicles. Scroll down the read the study’s full results.
