Remedy Dealers will modify the transmission control unit to limit vehicle speed to below approximately 30 miles per hour when the vehicle is operated in the four-wheel-drive low range, will provide an additional label describing the proper use of four-wheel-drive low range, and will relocate the transmission breather vent. In addition, the owner's manual will be corrected with the proper information to reflect the change to the speed limitations in the four-wheel-drive low range. Owner notification was to begin during April 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles with four wheel drive and automatic transmissions, automatic transmission fluid could be vented onto the hot exhaust system as a result of unanticipated heat generation in the transmission. The vented transmission fluid could come into contact with the hot exhaust system and result in a fire.
