Cape Town - Due to global Takata airbag recall campaign, Mitsubishi announces local recall campaign on 7449 Pajeros. 

Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA) has issued a preventative recall on 7449 Pajeros, built between 2007 and 2016, in the South African market for safety inspections and replacement of driver airbags.

Replaced at no cost

Mitsubishi is one of several vehicle manufacturers affected by the potentially defective airbag inflators manufactured by Takata, OEM airbag supplier to Mitsubishi and various other automotive brands.

MMSA is currently busy contacting owners to arrange and co-ordinate the timing of the service inspections where airbags will be replaced at no cost. Replacement parts first need to be distributed to dealers countrywide before customers will be asked to take their vehicles to their respective dealers.

The inspection and replacement procedure will take approximately one hour.

An online VIN-checker with a FAQ-section is available on the company's website (www.mitsubishi-motors.co.za/recall) for Pajero owners who want to check if their vehicles are affected.
