Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 28, 2012 / Notices Mitsubishi further stated that the OSS immobilizer device will be identical to the one installed on its Outlander Sport vehicle line. Mitsubishi was granted an exemption for the Outlander Sport vehicle line on February 14, 2011 by NHTSA (See 76 FR 8400) beginning with its MY 2012 vehicles. Since the agency granted Mitsubishi’s exemption for its MY 2012 Outlander Sport vehicle line, there has been no available theft rate information for this vehicle. Mitsubishi also informed the agency that the Eclipse, Galant, Endeavor, Outlander, Lancer, and I-MiEv vehicle lines have been equipped with a similar type of immobilizer device since January 2000, January 2004, April 2004, September 2006, March 2007, and October 2011 respectively, and they have all been granted parts-marking exemptions by the agency. Mitsubishi also stated that its Eclipse vehicle line has been equipped with a similar device since introduction of its MY 2000 vehicles. Mitsubishi further stated that the theft rate for the MY 2000 Eclipse decreased by almost 42% when compared with that of its MY 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse (unequipped with an immobilizer device). Mitsubishi has concluded that the proposed antitheft device for its vehicle line is no less effective than those devices in the lines for which NHTSA has already granted full exemption from the parts-marking requirements. The average theft rates using 3 MY’s data for the Mitsubishi Eclipse, Galant, Endeavor, Outlander and Lancer vehicle lines are 1.7356, 4.8973, 1.1619, 0.3341 and 1.0871 respectively. Theft rate data for the Outlander Sport and i-MiEV are not available. S.P No. The agency has evaluated Mitsubishi’s MY 2014 petition to modify the exemption for the Outlander vehicle line from the parts-marking requirements of 49 CFR Part 541, and has decided to grant it. Since the same aspects of performance (i.e., arming and the immobilization feature) are still provided, the agency believes that the same level of protection is being met. The agency believes that the proposed device will continue to provide the five types of performance listed in § 543.6(a)(3): promoting activation; attracting attention to the efforts of unauthorized persons to enter or operate a vehicle by means other than a key; preventing defeat or circumvention of the device by unauthorized persons; preventing operation of the vehicle by unauthorized entrants; and ensuring the reliability and durability of the device. If Mitsubishi decides not to use the exemption for this line, it should formally notify the agency. If such a decision is made, the line must be fully marked according to the requirements under 49 CFR parts 541.5 and 541.6 (marking of major component parts and replacement parts). NHTSA suggests that if the manufacturer contemplates making any changes, the effects of which might be characterized as de minimis, it should consult the agency before preparing and submitting a petition to modify.
