Mitsubishi recalls 200,000 Libero station wagons

TOKYO July 2, 2005; Japan Today reported that Mitsubishi Motors Corp said Friday it is recalling about 209,000 units of its Libero station wagon for free repairs due to defective mounting bolts in the tailgate, which the automaker said led to a user being injured last year.

Subject to the recall are vehicles made between March 1992 and August 2002, Mitsubishi said in a recall notice to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Last September, a user sustained injuries to the neck when a loosened bolt caused the tailgate to fall over, the automaker said. (Kyodo News)
