Mitsubishi Recalls Two SUV Models Due to Windshield Wiper Malfunction

Mitsubishi is recalling two SUV models to fix issues that could cause the windshield wipers to malfunction.

The first recall affects about 100,000 Outlanders from the 2007 to 2013 model years.

The company says water can get between the hood of the vehicle and the windshield, which can cause a ball joint to rust, knocking out the wipers.

Dealers will be offering replacements of a rubber boot on the joint to keep water from getting in.

The second recall affects about 95,000 Outlander Sports from the 2011 to 2015 model years due to a similar issue.

Mitsubishi says water could get between the hood and windshield, causing the wiper motor to rust and possibly fail.

Dealers will offer motor replacements at no cost to owners.
