INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - PT Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Sales Indonesia (MMKSI) held an improvement campaign on 14,499 units of Pajero Sport in Indonesia. This followed the discovery of problems with the rear door mechanism.
Of the total units, which are included in this campaign is Pajero Sport from the production year 2016, where the component in question is on Tailgate Gas Spring.
According to information from MMKSI, the component suffers from a lack of anti-rust coating in the End Cap Outer Tube area of Tailgate Gas Spring, so over time it can rust on the Outer Tube.
If the Outer Tube has rusted, End Cap can be detached or Tailgate will fall suddenly and potentially cause injury.
"Consumers who have a vehicle model with a year of production referred to receive a campaign invitation can directly contact the dealer for inspection and replacement of official components without any charge" said Irwan Kuncoro, Director of Sales & Marketing Division MMKSI.
Pajero Sport customers who want to replace the component can directly come to the official repair shop to do the replacement, with a processing time of only about 1 hour is required.
Until now there are no reports of incidents related to the above conditions / conditions and MMKSI will send an official invitation letter to consumers whose vehicles are involved in this campaign for inspection and replacement of related parts / spare parts at no charge.
