Mitsubishi America Has Recalled the 2002 Mitsubishi Galant

(SafetyAlerts) -  Mitsubishi America Has Recalled the 2002 Mitsubishi Galant because of potential electrical problems.

Number Involved: 3,378

Dates of Manufacture: May 2002

Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, the routing of the vehicle’s front wiring harness can allow it to come in contact with a rough edge, allowing abrasion. This could result in grounded circuits and a loss of stop or turn signal lamp operation or engine hesitation.

Remedy: Dealers will install a protector eliminating any harness contact. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 8, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.

[NHTSA Recall No. 02V147]

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
