What are the defects?
The piston rings may become stuck due to soot deposits accumulated in the piston ring grooves.
What are the hazards?
As a result, the pistons may overheat and melt due to excessive blow-by gasses. This may cause the engine to stall or become impossible to restart, posing a potential traffic hazard to road users.
What should consumers do?
Owners are requested to contact the nearest Mitsubishi dealer at their earliest convenience to make an appointment to have the vehicle rectified.
As a precaution prior to rectification, drivers are advised to use low engine power.
