Hi, live in Stockholm and own a 2014 Outlander PHEV. Some months ago, we got a letter in the mail explaining that our Outlander needed to be taken in to replace part or parts because there was a chance that it would stall in traffic. Unfortunately we lost this letter and never followed up. Does anyone remember what this problem was? Did anyone have this fix done? We have driven-problem free for a year and are due for a regular check in May. Should we wait to have it fixed then or take it in immediately?

There was a recall last year regarding a change of spark plugs and a bit of computer "fiddling", something to do with the engine not firing up in some scenarios. Perhaps that was it? If you haven't experienced any trouble, I'd be inclined to leave it until May, and ask then.

Thank you so much! We will probably wait until May. Really appreciate your reply.

Hi, I had my spark plugs replaced + SW upgraded. Last week I had the SW upgraded again. I was never told exactly why they upgraded the SW again.
