Some 3,700 Mitsubishi Xpander cars and 5,300 Outlander vehicles will be recalled from today until January 17, 2023, to check and replace faulty fuel pumps as plastic impellers for fuel pumps can inflate and stop their operation, causing the engine to stall or not start, according to an announcement released by Mitsubishi Vietnam today, January 18.

The Xpander cars to be recalled were manufactured between August 21, 2019, and September 20, 2019, while the Outlander vehicles subject to the recall were produced from January 15, 2018, to July 21, 2019.

Mitsubishi Vietnam will carry out free checks and a replacement, which will take some 72 minutes for Xpander cars and 66 minutes for Outlander autos, the local media reported.

Mitsubishi authorised dealerships will send emails and messages or call up affected car users to inform them about the recall campaigns.

Some 17,000 Xpander cars were sold in 2020, while some 4,000 Outlander autos found buyers, according to data from the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers Association.
