Mitsubishi Motors North America is recalling 35,674 2016-model year Outlander and Outlander Sport vehicles because the inside door latch mechanisms may not latch securely in high temperatures, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

This defect may allow the doors to open while the vehicle is in motion, which poses a safety risk. Mitsubishi dealers will replace the door latches, free of charge, according to NHTSA.

Vehicle owners can reach Mitsubishi customer service at (888) 648-7820. The automaker’s number for this recall is SR-17-002.
