Whats wrong: There is a possibility that the bolt welded to the manual control lever (mounted on the automatic transmission) may develop a crack when the shift cable attaching nut is tightened. If this occurs, the shift cable attaching nut torque may be reduced allowing the shift cable to move.
This can result in an indicated shift position which is different to the gearshift position at the transmission. In a worse case condition if the driver selects P and or N position, actual shift position at the transmission may be R or D. If this occurs, there is a possibility of unexpected vehicle movement if the accelerator is depressed in this situation.
What should you do?: Mitsubishi Motors will contact owners of all vehicles.
