The cars will be recalled for checking and replacement of failed airbags. They will be recalled until October 31, 2019, with repair time taking between 30 and 108 minutes per vehicle.

The recall is attributed to the possibility that catalyst inside the airbag’s fuse could degenerate due to temperature change after a long period of use, causing the fuse’s cover to break when the airbag is activated.

The Vietnam Register has recommended clients of Mitsubishi Vietnam bring their cars in for checks to ensure safety.
