RECALL: Nearly 2000 Mitsubishi Outlander SUVs have faulty seatbelts

Mitsubishi Australia has recalled 1948 examples of the Outlander mid-size SUV over an issue with their seatbelts.

Specifically, the recall involves MY20 Outlanders sold between July 31, 2019, and March 31, 2020.

The right-hand-side seatbelt anchorage in the second row of these vehicles was incorrectly assembled and therefore may not restrain their occupant properly.

If this were to occur, the risk of serious injury or death in an accident is increased.

Affected owners will be contacted by Mitsubishi Australia via mail with instructions to book their vehicle in at a preferred service centre for a free-of-charge inspection and repair.

Those looking for further information can call Mitsubishi Australia on 1800 931 811. Alternatively, they can reach out to their preferred dealership.

A full list of impacted Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) can be found at the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s ACCC Product Safety Australia website.
