MITSUBISHI Motors Australia has issued a nationwide recall for the 2016 Mitsubishi Triton dual-cab ute, due to faulty rivets that are at risk of corrosion and fracturing especially when exposed to salt or an anti-freeze agent.
Corroded or fractured rivets presents a real hazard to users as well as other road users, as the side-steps may drop off unexpectedly.
The recall is said to affect 13,876 MY2016 dual-cab Tritons with the “pipe type” side-steps, which were sold between March 2, 2015, and May 26, 2017 – the full VIN list of affected Tritons can be seen here.\
Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact all owners and advise them to bring their utes into a preferred Mitsubishi dealership to have the issue rectified.
Mitsubishi says the replacement rivets will be fitted for free and can be performed at any Mitsubishi dealership, regardless of where the vehicle was originally purchased.
For more information on the recall, owners can call Mitsubishi Motors Australia on 1800 931 811 or their preferred dealership on 1300 131 211.
