Defect: On certain passenger vehicles, the bolt securing the crankshaft pulley can become loose, and the pulley could fall off the vehicle, resulting in a loss of power steering assist.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the vehicles to insure that the bolt is tightened. For those bolts not properly tightened, the bolt and pulley will be removed and inspected for any indication of damage. Components showing any signs of damage will be replaced and the bolt tightened to the proper torque. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 26, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820.
