Owners of Misubishi Fuzion owners who bought their units between June 2007 and February 2012 are urged to heed an ongoing special safety recall

MANILA, Philippines – Owners of Fuzion, a Mitsubishi-made Asian Utility Vehicle model, who made their purchase between June 2007 and February 2012 are urged to heed an ongoing special safety recall.

In a statement on Wednesday, March 21, the Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) said the safety recall is meant to inspect and, if needed, replace the steering column intermediate shaft.

MMPC said its principal in Japan directed the safety recall as some batches of steering column intermediate shafts produced between 2007 to 2012 were suspected to have insufficient welding that may result to failure.

It estimates that the procedure (inspection and replacement) would take 1.5 hours “at the most.”

There has been no reported failures on the steering column yet, according to MMPC.

The Department of Trade and Industry has been informed of this recall campaign, the car manufacturer said.

MMPC president and CEO Hikosaburo Shibata said that company has already mobilized its Customer Relations Department to trace the units from its customer database

This recall will potentially affect around 2,137 units of the Fuzion vehicles. – Rappler.com
