- Mitsubishi and NHTSA Issue Safety Recalls
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced on May 10 that more than 130,000 Mitsubishi vehicles were being recalled due to safety concerns.
The recalled Mitsubishi vehicles include:
- Lancer (2009-2011)
- Outlander Sport (2009-2011)
The vehicles are being recalled for defects in the defrosting features and electronic control units that affect the headlights, tail lights and other features in the vehicles.
The defects prevent drivers from seeing the road well enough to drive safely. The manufacturer of the vehicles and the NHTSA were able to act quickly enough in the recall process to prevent injuries. No accidents have been reported in connection with the identified safety defects.
Driver Visibility Dangers
Poor driver visibility, especially when headlights, tail lights, and windshields are affected, as is the case with the Mitsubishi recalls, can cause dangerous driving conditions.
When tail lights and headlights arent properly functioning, other drivers may not be able to see the malfunctioning vehicle, and this can cause accidents.
Additionally, the Mitsubishi recalls also prevent the defrosting features from functioning in a safe manner. Owners of the affected Mitsubishi vehicles who are located in wintry states face a serious hazard during the cold months.
Reduced visibility and low visibility are contributing factors in many winter road accidents. Safety tips for driving under reduced visibility conditions include:
- Maintaining a slow speed
- Remaining alert
- Using headlights
- Maintaining a safe distance
Safety experts advise drivers to take their cars in for regular checkups, including windshield wipers and headlights. Drivers who take low-visibility precautions can keep themselves and everyone else on the road safe.

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
