Mitsubishi the latest to join the recall of Takata airbags in the US

According to reports an undisclosed number of Lancer sedans are to be recalled by Mitsubishi for airbag malfunction. The malfunctioning Takata airbags are relevant to the Mitsubishi sedans manufactured since 2004 and through 2005.

Mitsubishi is the latest and the 9th in the list of automakers that use the airbags made by Takata in the US. The fault originates from an inflator that can potentially rupture the airbag and cause metal shrapnel to spray over the passenger. In the past half decade a reported 12 million vehicles have been recalled for the faulty Takata airbags. Humidity is the contributing factor for the debacle, according to NHTSA belief, hence the recall will be restricted to registered vehicles which are affected and sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the US Virgin Islands as conveyed to NHTSA by Mitsubishi via a letter.

 

Mitsubishi also stated that the company has not received any information on crashes or injuries engineered by the Takata airbags and it further said that no defect has been found in the applied safety standards during the tests of the concerned airbags. The company however will issue the recall as a gesture of good faith and to acknowledge the NHTSA.
