Kuala Lumpur, 22 Febrauary 2018 – Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has requested for owners of Mitsubishi Lancer and Outlander, imported from Japan and the locally-assembled ASX to replace the engine control relay of their vehicles. Overall affected cars are about 5,000 units.
|ASX Compact SUV||March 2015 – November 2016|
|Lancer Sedan||December 2014 – February 2016|
|Outlander SUV||December 2015 – June 2016|
The relay protects the engine’s ECU from any sudden surge of voltage. If it is not replaced, the internal parts of the relay may fail and subsequently affect the engine’s ECU function.
Separately, MMM will also be conducting a Field Fix Campaign to replace the passenger side airbag inflator for 115 units of Pajero Exceed manufactured from March 2010 – July 2012.
Some of the passenger side airbag 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,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
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 centres for the replacement of the above.
