Mitsubishi is recalling its 2004 and 2005 Lancer vehicles for a passenger side air bag inflator that may rupture.

Aug 07, 2014

SUMMARY:

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is conducting a limited regional recall for certain model year 2004 and 2005 Lancer vehicles currently registered in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand passenger side air bag inflators. Upon deployment of the passenger side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

CONSEQUENCE:

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger side frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

REMEDY:

MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side air bag inflators free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MMNA AT 1-888-648-7820.
