Mitsubishi has recalled 25,016 examples of its small ASX in Australia for a fix to the front wiper motor.
The recall, which affects models in the MY2011-12 ‘XA’ and MY2013-14 ‘XB’ Mitsubishi ASX lines, centres on the potential for water intrusion, drawn into the motor’s cooling air opening after use.
The company reports that this occurrence could cause the motor to rust or seize up, making the wipers inoperable.
Mitsubishi Australia has confirmed it will contact owners as parts become available, to arrange replacement.
Any owner already experiencing an inoperable wiper motor should contact their nearest Mitsubishi dealership or call the national office on 1300 131 211.
