Through my daughter in FL who has a 2022 Outlander as well, will have it looked at when she has her oil changed. The dealers are aware and I've seen pictures and heard of how they are correcting it. I'd contact your service dept. I haven't called yet. Also, check your your pressure! My daughter's as well as mine were at 51lbs. If you reduce to 36 or 37, it will drastically reduce shaking!

Anyone know if Mitsubishi fixed the front hood issue on the 2022 Outlanders? Highway driving, the hood would rattle and look like it wants to fly off. Even accompanied with a noise.
Hello, I’m just wondering if you have an update on your hood issue?
I purchased 2022 Outlander in July. I’ve been corresponding in writing ( emails with Mitsubishi Canada. ). If you want their email, let me know. My hood, lifts and flutters at speeds over 90km.
I have been to the local dealer three times, the service department applied the “TSB/technical Service Bulletin” fix ….i can tell you that the TSB service is just some weather shield tape around the interior hood, they tighten latch and slightly raise the hood bumpers. Big deal, it didn’t change things. It does NOT take a physics expert to understand that a large hood which is fluttering, rattling and lifting will eventually contribute to wear and erode latches and the hinges. This constant lifting, rattling and fluttering has to be straining the hood latches and the back hinges near the windshield . Surely over time, this is a safety issue.

Many discussions here about it but it appears that there is still no ultimate fix yet. It's beyond frustrating as this is a bigger issue than most people realize for the reasons you mentioned.
I don't get my Outlander (2022 GT model) until Sept. 12th week and the dealership said the new incoming ones don't have the issue....this is yet to be proven. I will test drive first and if it flutters, I'm not going to buy it. I also heard many people on that facebook page say the dealers are telling them a fix is coming soon....but I don't think that is true, especially if they are still producing this car with this known issue and knowing they would have to do a major recall eventually. I'll be posting on that fb page when I go get/or not get my new outlander. If mine doesn't truly have the issue, then i'm sure they have figured it out and a real fix will be out soon for the early production ones.

I had one on order, they told me the”new” ones coming in wouldn’t have the issue. In came in 3 weeks ago…same issue, I didn’t buy it. I purchased a Hyundai Santa Fe Calligraphy instead. More money but so much better quality wise. Mitsubishi is not handling this issue well. Seems like a lot of “a fix is coming” etc. Trust me, they knew about the issue before the first production. My suggestion, If you can return it, do it!

I haven't, I had an appointment and didn't make it. I know it's not a serious issue and what they do may not cure it 100 pro. My wife said our 2022 Outlander cut out, totally lost power and went black when pulling out on a highway! Had to stop and re start to continue.. also noticed an irritating low speed 17mph rattle back right can't locate... Footnote on the hood and the dealer, tell them to reduce the tire pressure from 70lbs to 34. They over pressurize for liking storage, gives a bumpy ride and more vibration..

I'll re mention something if nobody else noticed. The hood issues with the were worsened by the vehicles still having the 70lb storage pressure on the lots. If you go to look at one, or if you have one check your pressure. My daughter told me, she has one in FL got a week before I bought mine in California.

I have also had the issue with being to the dealer over 5 times for the same concern as well as issues with the radio, power windows, and now the trunk latch is acting up.
Mitsubishi said they would not buy the vehicle back and they have released a brand new style of hood to resolve the issue, if it doesn’t resolve the issue then most likely we would seek legal counsel. We had over 80mph winds in Colorado and my wife had to pull off the highway because it was dragging the car across the lanes of traffic due to the amount of air flow underneath, this is by and large a safety concern and the vehicle should not have been sold to us in the state of its manufacturing, it has been a nightmare dealing with Mitsubishi, and I’ve been a very loyal Mitsubishi customer for the last decade. They knew about the hood issue and failed to disclose it at the time of the vehicle sale, otherwise we would not have purchased it with this major defect. Not to mention the slew of electrical gremlins it has going on now.

Well, I bought my vehicle 1 week ago, it had 5 miles on it- drove off the lot and my hood was weeble wobbling as if it was open. Pulled over, opened/closed it and still the same. It’s horrible! Went right back and the dealership and it just closed. I called the salesman and he said bring it back in the following week, sometimes hoods need adjustments (cough cough) on new vehicles. I haven’t been able to go back this past week due to my work schedule but I will be there bright and early in the morning!

I’m sure it’ll be a whole rigamarole..

Today, it was pretty windy out- I thought I was going to crash. The wind got up and under the vehicle- I thought I was driving on a sheet of ice! I’m in Florida, originally from NY so I’m an all weather driver, but this… this put a lot of fear in my heart!

I really don’t know about this..

Yep, it’s terrible. This should not have been missed before release. Mitsubishi claims it’s not a safety concern, but when you have high winds like we did in Colorado and it pulls the vehicle across lanes of traffic I’d say that’s a safety concern. There is going to have to be a class action lawsuit, also check your state laws, you may be able to return the vehicle completely in a certain amount of time. Which, if we had known how serious the hood issue was, we would not have purchased it to begin with, they’ve known about the issue since last March and still allowed the vehicles to be sold in this condition undisclosed.

I reduced the air pressure to recommended pressure, the shaking reduced drastically. I don't feel it necessary to check further. I will check at next service though for any updates, did you buy one? I'm overall very happy with the car. It's brand new work a lot of technology, bound to be glitches.

Maybe shouldn't drive high profile vehicles in high winds, as recommended by weather service. I'd you have to, reduce speed and be cautious.

Did you get it fixed yet? I have the same issue
No, I talked to a dealer/maintenance guy and he said he ordered the parts but I never followed up. I just reduced the air pressure to recommended levels, I don't notice it as much.. they rolled us out with
storage pressures, made the vibration worse. I don't worry about it now, maybe next service..

Dealers do have repair options now for them. Early cars have a revisiion to the rubber bump stops, and later models have replacement hoods available. But as they will need painting this will take a couple of visits to organise
