- 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.

Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
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.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group

Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
