Make & Model : Mitsubishi Lancer Wagon
Number of vehicles affected: 7145
Model Years From: Wagons built from July 1993 to December 2002
Whats wrong?: There is a possibility that the bolts attaching the tailgate gas strut mounting bracket to the body may become loose. In the worst case the bolts may be subjected to increased stress and this could result in separation of the strut to body mounting bracket and/or bolt failure allowing the tailgate to close unexpectedly from the fully open posiition.
What should you do?: Contact your nearest Mitsubishi dealer.
