Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam (MMV) is recalling 4,218 Outlander Sport and Pajero Sport units, which were found to have malfunctioning rear hatch doors.

Of the recalling campaign, there are 943 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport units with model-year 2014-2016 and 3,275 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport units, manufactured from 2011 to June 2016.

According to a recall message issued by the Vietnam Register, in the rear hatch door filled with gas, the cover of the outer rear door hanger can rust due to insufficient corrosion resistant coating. If it continues to be used in a corrosion-resistant rear door, the cover of the outer tube against the rear door may break as the tube expands during rusting.

In the worst case scenario, a person standing around the back door may be injured because the outer tube of the rear door protector ruptures when the back door is opened or can cause the vehicle’s rear door to fall suddenly.

For imported vehicles, owners can enjoy service from MMV if receiving confirmation from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation.

The recall will take place at all agents and authorised dealers of the MMV nationwide from August 1 to July 31, 2019. The check and fix will be free of charge. — VNS
