Kindly find list below for all six Field Fix Campaigns:

No Field Fix Campaign Mitsubishi Vehicles Affected and Manufacturing Year Description
1 Inspection and rectification of rear parking brake Outlander (2016)

ASX (2013, 2015, 2017)

Improper Sealing of Parking Brake

Due to improper sealing of parking brake, water may enter and caused the shaft to rust.

If continue to use, the rust will erode into the internal caliper and reduce the parking brake force.

2 Replacement of front wiper link ball joint ASX (2011-2013) Improper waterproof structure of the front deck portion

In the event that water drops through the back of the front deck, the front wiper link ball joint may experience excessive moisture and corrode.

3 Inspection of engine auto tensioner ASX (2011-2012)

Lancer (2008 – 2012)

Lancer Sportback (2011-2012)

Insufficient strength durability for auto tensioner.

Due to the improper design of the auto tensioner, the sliding resistance force will increase over time.

This may cause damage on the flange area of the auto tensioner if the engine is used under high-speed driving.

4 Reprogramming of ASC ECU software Outlander (2017) Improper software in ASC ECU for Outlander

Due to improper software in ASC ECU for Outlander, an electric noise will generate when the motor pump is activated. This causes incorrect IC operation, which results to ECU reset.

The hydraulic unit function may also be interrupted and may affect the vehicle’s driving stability.

5 Replacement of sunroof glass Lancer EVO (2009) Deterioration of the resin material may result in decrease of adhesive strength

Depending on the temperature and weather humidity, the adhesive strength of the outer frame of the sunroof glass may become weak because of the resin material.

If the vehicle is still used under this condition, there is a possibility that the sunroof glass will detach from the outer frame.

6 Replacement of passenger airbag with countermeasure inflator Lancer (2004-2007) Deterioration of propellant may cause excessive internal pressure

If the vehicle has been exposed to high levels of humidity for an extended period of time, the propellant; PSAN (phased- stabilized ammonium nitrate) may deteriorate and cause excessive internal pressure.

The inflator body of passenger side airbag may rupture, during a normal air bag deployment event.

For all Field Fix Campaigns, MMM will issue notification letters to all affected Mitsubishi owners and the full cost of the replacement and rectification will be borne by the company.

“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.

“Late last year, we have repositioned our Triton variants to benefit our customers not only in terms of handling, performance and safety, but also to price it affordably to cater for different customers.

“We are also pleased to share that the Triton is still, the only pick-up offering up to 200,000KM or 5 Years of warranty. That means our customers will get to travel more mileage with an added peace of mind,” Shinnishi added.

Separately, the encouraging sales performance for the Outlander SUV was mainly due to the introduction of the locally-assembled Outlander in September 2017, with a significantly value-for-money price point, and the effect of the tax holiday.

Kindly find adaptation of press release below from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation:


It’s 1978, and the world is changing. Space Invaders spreads to arcades across the globe and launches the video game industry. The first automated cellular phone network is being built in Japan and Superman takes off in cinemas.Another product is launched which, over the next four decades, will bring mobility to 4.7 million people – the Mitsubishi 1-ton pickup.It’s a pickup truck that can handle all types of road, anywhere on the planet. It has been developed with a design brief – to meet the desire of customers for a pickup with outstanding reliability, durability and payload performance; with levels of drivability, utility, comfort and ride that are on a par with a passenger sedan.

The first models were appropriately named FORTE, although exports used other badges such as L200, which remain in use today. From the very beginning, the FORTE was engineered to provide tough, dependable transport for people and goods.

The FORTE was developed to provide a 1-ton carrying capacity and yet be as easy to drive, have a combination of rugged reliability, easy-to-drive nature and impressive carrying capacity. This soon made it a firm favorite across the world, from frozen wastes to sun-baked deserts.

To ensure customers could go even further afield, Mitsubishi Motors built on its four-wheel-drive heritage by adding a 4×4 version to the range in 1980. This became the foundation for modern Mitsubishi 4WD vehicles, leading directly to the PAJERO/MONTERO and DELICA.

The pickup, soon renamed TRITON in many markets, had a profound effect on the Mitsubishi Motors’ business too. The first and second generation platforms were mainly produced at Mitsubishi Motors Ohe Plant. Since the third-generation model in 1995, production has been concentrated in the Laem Chabang Plant in Thailand, from where they are exported worldwide. It is now Mitsubishi Motors’ biggest factory, producing about 400,000 vehicles.

Here is a reminder of the previous generations of the FORTETRITON and L200 – and a glimpse at what the near future might hold…

1st Generation 1978 FORTE/L200

There is a huge overseas demand, particularly in North America, for small pickup trucks, where they are used casually for commuting to school and work, as well as for recreation.

Mitsubishi Motors introduced its first 1-ton pickup truck with the name FORTE in September 1978, and began to export to North America from the following October.

The name for the 1-ton pickup truck "FORTE" means "strong" in Italian. The prototypes underwent rigorous endurance testing on a massive scale in North America, Thailand, and Saudi Arabia to ensure reliability. A total of approximately 657,000 vehicles were produced in the Ohe Plant in Japan, and partially in the Laem Chabang Plant in Thailand.

The styling took its cues from the compact sedan GALANT Σ, with a long nose, an air-dam skirt which was introduced for trucks for the first time, and four round headlights. The FORTE was powered by a 2.0-litre and 2.6-litre petrol engines for North America and 1.6-litre petrol engine for Japan and other regions. A 2.3-litre diesel engine was available for general exports. Its wide 1,360mm front track and long wheelbase of 2,780mm ensured superior driving stability.

The chassis was sophisticated for a commercial vehicle too, with front disc brakes, double wishbone/coil springs for the front suspension, and leaf springs and rigid axle in the rear.

The very quiet interior results from an uncompromising approach to NVH performance, which includes the use of a 2-piece prop shaft and the generous use of strategically-placed sealing materials.

Mitsubishi Motors leveraged its many years of experience of building Jeeps, and added a newly-developed part-time 4WD transfer system with a directly-linked silent chain. This system reduced gear noise and power loss, and enabled high-speed on-road driving.

This model served as the forerunner for Mitsubishi Motors' 4WD lineup such as the PAJERO/MONTERO and the DELICA.


2nd Generation 1986 STRADA/L200

There was a full model change in March 1986.

The exterior sports a classy makeover with a new front grille design, among other detail changes. And the lines create a shape that looks as tough and modern as it is aero-efficient.

A wider variety of configurations were offered, including three body types: Single Cab, Club Cab, Double Cab, short and long body style available for Single Cab, 2WD and 4WD drivetrain options, 2.0-litre and 2.6-litre gasoline engines, and 2.5-litre diesel engine.

The naming changed too, with double-cab STRADA being introduced in Japan in 1991. The model was also called MIGHTY MAX in North America, TRITON in Australia, and L200 in other areas. In North America, it was also sold by Dodge as the RAM 50.

A total of approximately 1,146,000 2nd generation models were produced in the Ohe Plant in Japan, and the Laem Chabang Plant in Thailand.


3rd Generation 1995 STRADA/L200

Production of the third generation STRADA/L200 began in November 1995 in Thailand. The interior and exterior designs were fully revised to give a distinctive and cutting-edge look.

The new style reflected the customer need to have a pickup truck which could also be used as a passenger car for personal use. The model was positioned as a roomy five seater that was comfortable and capable enough for both recreational and commercial uses.

Power and off-road performance were improved with a 2.5-litre intercooled turbodiesel engine and features such as "Easy Select 4WD." Safety and equipment levels were also enhanced to match the expectations of buyers used to passenger car levels of comfort.

The STRADA/L200 was sold in Thailand and also exported to Europe, Oceania, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. A total of approximately 1,046,000 vehicles were produced.

It featured:

  • A fresh new look that combines the toughness of a pickup truck with the style of a passenger car
  • An interior with a passenger car feel, featuring molded door trimmings and oversized padding for comfort
  • A roomy cargo area that is among the largest in its class
  • The 2.5-litre turbodiesel intercooled engine with better drivability
  • Enhanced passive and active safety features such as driver-side airbag, anti-pinch power windows, and high level brake lights
  • Mitsubishi Motors "Easy Select 4WD" system was adopted, with its synchronized free-wheel front differential that allows the driver to choose the most efficient drive mode for any road surface.
  • Available on some trim levels are: Mitsubishi Motors ABS, which prevents the wheels from locking up during braking to stabilize body attitude and handling; and a hybrid limited slip differential (LSD) that enhances driving stability


4th Generation 2005 TRITON/L200

In August 2005 there is full model change and after its introduction in Thailand in 2005 it was exported in stages to approximately 150 countries worldwide, becoming an important model in Mitsubishi Motors' global strategy.

The TRITON/L200 was developed with the following three key features to help it conquer the world. First, it had to exceed the basic performance requirements of pickup trucks such as economy, durability, and reliability. Second, it had to have the highest quality standards to further strengthen the brand on a global scale. And lastly, it had to meet a wide variety of customer needs, not just be a commercial use vehicle.

A total of 1,423,000 4th generation TRITON/L200 were produced.

Characteristic features of the 2005 TRITON/L200 include an innovative interior and exterior design which suggests sportiness while also being stylish. The packaging gives the roomiest interior in its class, while the suspension and interior equipment enable ride comfort to rival passenger cars.

These elements not only highlighted the innovativeness of the TRITON/L200 in the marketplace, but dispelled the general image of pickup trucks as merely commercial vehicles. This greatly expanded the customer base of Mitsubishi Motors' pickup trucks.

A newly developed diesel engine with a direct injection common rail produced high power while achieving low fuel consumption, exhaust emissions, and noise levels.

The newly designed body also achieved the highest level of crashworthiness in its class. Participation in the Dakar Rally and other races built up its superior off-road 4WD performance and helped tell the world about the TRITON/L200's toughness.

  • Body configurations include three types: Single Cab, Club Cab, and Double Cab.
  • Engines include newly developed 2.5-litre and 3.2-litre common rail diesel engines.
  • Drivetrains are 2WD and 4WD ("Super Select 4WD" and "Easy Select 4WD").


5th Generation 2014 TRITON/L200

In 2014, the new 5th generation TRITON/L200 further refines the concept to meet with the increasingly varying needs of customers. Improved usability and durability for commercial use, a sporty feel that is both easy and fun to drive, quality that gives customer satisfaction, and comfort for every passenger are all qualities that the new TRITON/L200 has realized, evolving into the "ultimate sports utility truck."

Three cabin types are offered to meet each purpose: Single Cab, Double Cab, and double door Club Cab.

The 2.5-litre turbodiesel and 2.4-litre gasoline engines have been improved and are offered alongside a newly-developed 2.4-litre MIVEC "clean" turbodiesel. It delivers superior performance while achieving top-level fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. A 6-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmission with sports mode are also offered for the first time.

The 4WD systems continue to develop too. The "Easy Select 4WD" system has three positions: 2H, 4H, 4L to provide optimum traction to match road conditions, and the "Super Select 4WD-II," with an electronic actuator.

A 2WD option is still offered, including the standard version and a "High Rider" model which has the same ground clearance as the 4WD for improved rough-road performance.
