RBS service required - Warranty issue

Tue May 11, 2021 12:21 pm


Recently my outlander broke down with a message on the dashboard saying “RBS service required”. I took it to a Mitsubishi dealership to check what the issue was and they got back to me saying, that the powertrain battery needs repairing and it will cost £4500+ as the warranty doesn’t cover it.

The car is a 2015 plate, registered on July 2015. When I was buying the car I purposely asked about the warranty and got told it would be covered for 8 years/100k miles rather than the 5 which the dealership are telling me it has, and has apparently checked with Mitsubishi about the situation.

Could anyone advise me on if anyone has had a similar issue, and if there is another way around it not to pay the price just yet if there is another fix?
