Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution recalled over clutch woes (Autoblog)

Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Recalls, Mitsubishi, Off-Road

Mitsubishi will be recalling over 10,000 Lancer Evolutions built between
December 12, 2007 and March 5, 2013, covering model years 2008 to 2013. The
recall only affects cars with manual transmissions, though, so if you opted
for a Lancer Evo with a quick-shifting SST, this recall doesn’t apply to you.

If you’re one of the 10,474 people that has a Lancer Evo X GSR, which is the
only way into a manual-trans Evo X, you need to plan a trip to your local
dealer. The recall relates to a failure in the clutch master cylinder, making
shifting in and out of gear difficult. Consequently, the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration reports that this could increase the odds of
crashing.

Mitsu will notify owners of the affected cars, and these Evo models will be
repaired, free of charge, at dealerships. The recall is slated to begin around
November 11. Scroll down for the full bulletin from the NHTSA.
