ISSUE: TAKATA AIRBAG INFLATORS

REQUESTED ACTION: MAY 2017 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 January 2017, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) has added the 2012 and 2014 i-MiEV to its Takata Air Bag Inflator Safety Recalls.

i-MiEV Vehicles
This Safety Recall for 2012 and 2014 i-MiEV vehicles covers the passenger side frontal air bag inflator. Owners of these vehicles were notified via First Class mail in March 2017.

Lancer Vehicles
This Safety Recall involves certain 2004 - 2006 Lancer/Lancer Sportback/Lancer Evolution vehicles nationwide, regardless of registration history. It involves the passenger side frontal air bag inflator. Multiple notifications have been sent to owners via First Class mail.

This recall was subsequently expanded to add 2006 - 2007 Lancer vehicles and owners of these vehicles were notified via First Class mail in July 2016.

Raider Trucks
This Safety Recall for the 2006 - 2009 Raider trucks now covers both the driver side frontal air bag inflator and the passenger side frontal air bag inflator. 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 did not have this recall completed were re-notified in 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.
