Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has requested owners of 128 units of Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed manufactured from 2010-2014 to send in their vehicles for replacement of driver airbag inflators.
Some of the driver airbags may release metal fragments when deployed causing injuries to the driver.
This exercise is part of the Takata airbag recall campaign worldwide.
“Safety is our utmost priority thus MMM is taking this initiative to assure customer’s safety and regrets the inconvenience caused to the affected customers.
“This effort is to enable the replacement of the driver airbag inflator with improved inflators,” MMM chief executive officer Tomoyuki Shinnishi.
Separately, MMM will also be conducting two other field fixes, the first of which involves tailgate gas spring for ASX Compact SUV and Pajero Sport manufactured from 2010-2015 and 2010-2016 respectively.
This exercise is necessary to replace the defective gas spring due to insufficient anti-corrosion coating.
The other campaign is for the ASX Compact SUV Wiper Motor, whereby possible water intrusion may result in corrosion to the internal parts of the wiper motor and cause it to stop operating.
MMM will issue notification letters to all affected Mitsubishi owners and the full cost of the replacement will be borne by the company.
All affected customers are urged to make an appointment at any of the Mitsubishi Motors authorised service centres for replacement of the above.
