More than 53,000 Mitsubishi Pajeros recalled in the UAE

Al Habtoor Motors says recall is related to faulty airbags

More than 53,000 Mitsubishi Pajeros recalled in the UAE

Thousands of Mitsubishi Pajero vehicles have been recalled in the UAE due to faulty airbags, Al Habtoor Motors has announced.

The dealership said in a statment cited by multiple local media sources that the recall is for a total of 53,918 vehicles.

It follows the instructions of the Ministry of Economy for the V90W/V80W Mitsubishi Pajeros made between January 2013 and December 2017.

“We regret to inform that due to usage condition, the changes of temperature and longtime humidity, the propellant (ammonium nitrate) in the inflator for passenger side frontal airbag may be deteriorated and, as a result, the inflator body may rupture at the time of airbag deployment,” said Al Habtoor Motors in the statement.

“Therefore the frontal airbag inflator for passenger side has to be changed."
