What are the defects?

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has identified that insufficient anti corrosion coating was applied to the end cap on the outer tube of the tailgate gas springs, and this may result in corrosion.

What are the hazards?

Corrosion may result in the end cap breaking and hitting the operator and/or the tailgate falling down suddenly and this may result in an injury or a potential accident.

What should consumers do?

Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all known owners by mail and advise them to present their vehicle to their preferred dealer to have replacement parts installed when parts become available.

Consumers who require further information should contact Mitsubishi Motors Australia on 1300 1312 11 or contact their preferred dealer via https://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/customer-assistance/locate-a-service-centre#
