Recall roundup: Mitsubishi ASX and Outlander in Australia image

Mitsubishi Australia has issued a recall for several ASX and Outlander vehicles because of a problem with the transfer cases which could lead to a loss of drive.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, there are a total of 1, 626 units of the ASX and Outlander which will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the transfer case solved.

“As a result of transmission fluid loss, the ATF pressure may drop, the gear shift may fail, warning lamps may illuminate and in the worst case, the vehicle may become immobile without warning”, said the ACCC in its official press release.

The affected Mitsubishi Outlander vehicles have been produced between September 12, 2012, and June 18, 2013, and they are in a total of 1,324 units, while the 302 ASXs have been assembled between April 16, 2013, and June 18, 2013. Mitsubishi is not aware of any accidents related to this issue. The company’s dealers will be inspecting the affected vehicles and make the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge. For any extra details on the subject, the owners should contact Mitsubishi Australia.
