What are the defects?

There is a possibility of improper welding on Front Suspension Lower Control Arms (LCA) produced prior to Friday, 11 May 2012 which may result in the weld failing.

What are the hazards?

If the weld fails, it will be readily detected by the driver as the vehicle will become unstable, pulling to either left or right side of the road. The defect potentially poses a hazard to the driver and other road users.

What should consumers do?

As a precaution prior to inspection, customers should operate the vehicle in a conservative manner to avoid excessive shock load on the parts that may be affected.

All owners of affected vehicles have been contacted by mail sent to their last known address. Owners are requested to contact the nearest Mitsubishi authorised service Dealer at their earliest convenience to make an appointment to have your vehicle rectified.

If you do not have the Dealer phone number available, please call 1300 13 12 11, select option 2 and enter the post code of your selling Dealer to be re-directed to that Dealer or your post code to be re-directed to the nearest Dealer.
