1999-2000 Mitsubishi Galant and 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse Automobiles Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1999-2000 Mitsubishi Galant and 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse automobiles, manufactured between May 1998 - October 1999, because the steering column multi-function switch levers can become loose or break over time.

Loosening or cracking of the levers can cause directional lamps that do not self-cancel or operate, head lamps that do not turn off, windshield washers that operate continuously and/or windshield wipers that do not operate.

Approximately 101,400 vehicles are affected by this recall.  Dealers will install a redesigned switch.

Owner notification was expected to begin during December 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.

[NHTSA Recall No. 99V305/Mitsubishi Recall No. 990WND0093]

affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA

If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
