Mitsubishi Motors Australia is to recall more than 20,000 Lancer and Outlander vehicles to repair a potential brake problem.
There have been no reported incidents of the problem within Australia and the national recall is precautionary.
The official recall posted on the Federal Government website says that “after starting, if the vehicle is only driven at low speed with minimal or no throttle opening, an increased brake pedal effort may be required on the first braking application because of the possibility of the brake booster check valve sticking.”
MMAL is to write to owners of all affected vehicles although the company says there have been no reported incidents in Australia of problems with the brake valves.
The 20,989 cars affected were all manufactured before December last year an the company will replace any defective parts at no cost to the owners.
