ISSUE: TAKATA AIRBAG INFLATORS

REQUESTED ACTION: SEPTEMBER 2016 CONSUMER UPDATE




Important Update

In response to Defect Information Reports that TK Holdings Inc. (Takata) submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in May 2016, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) has expanded its Lancer and Raider Air Bag Inflator Safety Recalls.

Lancer Vehicles
The prior Safety Recall involved certain 2004 - 2006 Lancer/Lancer Sportback/Lancer Evolution vehicles nationwide, regardless of registration history.

This recall has been expanded to add 2006 - 2007 Lancer vehicles utilizing the passenger air bag inflator at issue.

Newly affected Lancer vehicle owners were notified by First Class mail in July 2016.

Raider Trucks

The prior Safety Recall for the 2006 - 2009 Raider trucks covered only the driver side frontal air bag inflator. The passenger side frontal air bag inflator will also be recalled. MMNA is diligently working on launching the recall for the passenger side frontal air bag inflator; however, parts are not yet available. Owners were notified via First Class mail, in July 2016, that parts were not available, and will be notified again once parts are available.

ISSUE: TAKATA PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL AIR BAG INFLATOR

AFFECTED VEHICLES: 2004-2007 MITSUBISHI LANCER, LANCER SPORTBACK, AND LANCER EVOLUTION

REQUESTED ACTION: CONTACT YOUR MITSUBISHI DEALER FOR APPOINTMENT




Important Update

In response to a Defect Information Report (DIR) that TK Holdings (Takata) submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) informed NHTSA on May 27, 2015 that it would be superseding the original Takata Passenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Regional Safety Recall to include an additional model year and expand the campaign nationwide. Recalled vehicles now include 2004-2006 Mitsubishi Lancer and Lancer Evolutions, and 2004 Lancer Sportbacks. Owners of affected vehicles were notified in June 2015 via First Class mail to contact their local Mitsubishi dealer to schedule an appointment to have the passenger side frontal air bag inflator replaced with a newly manufactured one. (Owners of vehicles that have not had this recall completed were re-notified late-August 2016 via First Class mail.)

Subsequently, Takata submitted another DIR to NHTSA in May 2016. As a result, MMNA launched an additional nationwide recall for certain 2006-2007 Lancer vehicles equipped with Takata passenger side frontal air bag inflators. Owners were notified via First Class mail in July 2016 to contact their dealer to schedule an appointment to have the passenger side frontal air bag inflator replaced.
