Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has requested owners of 128 units of Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed manufactured between 2010 – 2014 to bring their vehicles in for the replacement of the driver airbag inflators. This is part of the Takata airbag recall campaign happening worldwide; some of the driver airbags may release metal fragments when deployed causing injuries to the driver.
“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,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
MMM will also be conducting two other field fixes unrelated to the airbag inflator issue. One involves the tailgate gas spring for the ASX compact SUV and Pajero Sport SUV manufactured between 2010 – 2015 and 2010 – 2016 respectively. This exercise is to replace the defective gas spring due to insufficient anti-corrosion coating.
The other campaign is to replace the ASX compact SUV’s wiper motor which may have water intrusion risk which 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.
MMM kindly request all affected customers to make an appointment at any of the Mitsubishi Motors authorized service center for the replacement of the aforementioned parts.
