Recall - Clutch Master Cylinder

Date: 10/23/2013



To: All US and Puerto Rico Mitsubishi Motors Dealerships

Subject: Upcoming Safety Recall Affecting Certain 2008 - 2013 Lancer Evolution Clutch Master Cylinder


On September 18, 2013, MMNA submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) a Defect Information Report regarding certain 2008 - 2013 Lancer Evolution vehicles built from December 12, 2007 March 5, 2013. Due to an insufficient bonding strength of clutch master cylinder components, separation may occur, resulting in fluid leakage. This condition results in the inability to engage or disengage the clutch, limits the ability to shift the transmission into or out of a gear, and can create a no start condition once the vehicle comes to a stop.

In November, you will receive a formal/official dealer notification from MMNA regarding the above safety recall. You are receiving this advance, informal letter because:

1. NHTSA will announce the recall on their website shortly after receipt of our Defect Information Report, and MMNA wants to assist you in handling any customer inquiries you may receive regarding this recall.

In the event you receive any direct customer inquiries regarding this issue, please feel free as necessary to refer them to the MMNA Customer Relations Hotline at (888) 648-7820. We appreciate your patience while we make the necessary preparations to launch this recall.

Sincerely,

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Mods:

Move to the correct location if it is in the transmission section or what not but good news.

Hopefully we get a newer stronger Clutch Master Cylinder.

After 5 years they finally guessed it. Even though I don't own an Evo anymore, I hope they will replace it with a metal CMC and no one will have problems with it.

Sorry for my ignorance, but how does this recall work? Will we get a free replacement? Or is it only if your CMC fails? Will labor be free or just the part?

Again sorry for being a newbtard!

I question if all the modded cars will be told to take a hike. Suspect no because the dealership looks at recalls as guaranteed pay day.

its a recall people. you take you car to the dealer, they install a new CMC. End of story. It's a safety issue, not a warranty issue. Mods dont matter.
