HÀ NỘI — Mitsubishi Việt Nam has initiated a nationwide safety recall campaign to replace driver and passenger-side airbag inflators.
More than 2,500 Pajero Mitsubishi units, which were imported from 2007 to 2016, will be recalled from November 1, 2017 to October 31, 2019.
Mitsubishi Việt Nam said in the case of some passenger and driver-side airbag inflators, the catalyst (ammonia nitrate) inside the airbag inflator may be subject to metamorphism due to temperature change in wet weather conditions over long periods of use. Thus, the cover of the inflator may break when the airbag is activated.
Estimated replacement time for the driver’s airbag inflator is 30 minutes and passenger’s airbag inflator is 108 minutes.
According to recommendations of the Vietnam Register, Mitsubishi Pajero units under the recall campaign are of five different types, therefore car owners should immediately visit the authorised dealer of Mitsubishi Việt Nam to check and replace, if required, the front airbag inflators for safety reasons. — VNS
