The 2010-2014 'NT' and 'NW' Mitsubishi Pajero has been added to the ongoing Takata airbag campaign this week, joining numerous other model years of the Japanese off-roader that have been recalled for the same issue.
In this latest notice, affected vehicles could be fitted with front passenger airbags that could release metallic fragments into the cabin when deployed in an accident.
This poses a significant risk of injury, even death, to the vehicle's occupants.
Owners of the recalled vehicles will be contacted via mail once parts become available, and will be advised to visit their local dealer to have their Pajero repaired.
This latest notice follows last month's recall for 19,131 2006-2010 Pajeros for the same issue. Last September 57,128 of the off-roaders from 2007 to 2016 were recalled for faulty driver's side inflators, bringing the total in just the last seven months to 96,407 vehicles.
