Mitsubishi and Changfeng recall Pajero SUVs


Shanghai. December 13 ( - Mitsubishi Motor Corporation said today it would recall 169 Pajero SUV made between November 10, 2004 and November 24, 2007 by its Chinese joint venture with Changfeng Motors due to an engine hood lock problem. Meanwhile, Changfeng Motors also announced to recall 10,152 units of CFA 2031 Pajero SUV manufactured between December 16, 2004 and February 9, 2007.

Due to a processing flaw, the engine hood locks of these vehicles may open automatically which may block the driver's vision. The two companies have already submitted a report with General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ). No accident has been reported.

Mitsubishi and Changfeng said their dealers would inspect the potentially flawed engine hood locks in the affected vehicles and replace the part with a new version without charge.

Mitsubishi and Changfeng have been in cooperation for some five years, and the two sides just decided to set up a 50-50 joint venture this June, while futher negotiations are still underway.
