MORE than 6000 Mitsubishi Pajeros have been recalled around the country over a steering fault.
According to a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, “inadequate welding strength” is to blame for the recall of the popular four-wheel drives.
“Due to inadequate welding strength, the front right side suspension lower control arm may fail at one of the weld joints,” the recall reads.

“If one of the lower control arm weld joints fails, the vehicle’s steering and stability may not operate properly, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to all road users.”
6384 Mitsubishi Pajero NX four-wheel drives made between 2017 and 2018 have been affected.
The ACCC says owners of the vehicles will be contacted via direct mail, advising them to bring their vehicle into their preferred Mitsubishi Dealership to arrange to have the vehicle repaired, free of charge.
The vehicles were available for sale between 21 November 2016 – 30 July 2019.
