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.
