Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd — Mitsubishi ASX MY2015 and Mitsubishi Outlander MY2016

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

Failure of the anti-rust coating (Fluorine) may allow rust to form on the parking brake shaft. As a result, the parking brake shaft may become stuck and may not engage.

What are the hazards?

If the parking brake shaft does not engage when the user shifts into a Park position, this could result in unintended vehicle movement. This may increase the risk of an accident, which may result in an injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all known owners by mail, advising them to present their vehicle to their preferred Mitsubishi dealer for inspection and repair, free of charge.

For further information, contact Mitsubishi Motors Australia on 1800 931 811 or your preferred Mitsubishi Motors Australia dealer on 1300 131 211, Option 2 or go to https://www.mitsubishi-motors.com.au/buying-tools/locate-a-dealer.html
