2010 Mitsubishi Galant Recalled

Posted in Mitsubishi, Recalls by Kurt Ernst | March 8th, 2010 | 3 Responses |

I don’t know how I missed this earlier, but there’s been a recall for the 2010 Mitsubishi Galant. If you’ve got one with an auto tranny, the oil cooler pipe assembly may not be thick enough. Corrosion could eat through the pipe, cause a leak, and (potentially) immolate you and your passengers in a fiery ball of death if an ignition source is around.

I’m not sure what surprised me more, the fact that Mitsubishi is still selling Galants or the fact that they’ve apparently sold 2,307 in the U.S. with automatic transmissions. If you’re one of the owners, you can call Mitsubishi at (800) 222-0037 to get details on the recall.

    I’ve heard that trannies would like thicker pipes, but I could’ve been mistaken.

    I’ve hear that they have problems with corrosion eating their pipes, too.
