Mitsubishi Motors' Australian Managing Director, Mr. Tom Phillips, today (27/07/00) clarified the Australian effect of the recently announced Japanese recall. At the time Mitsubishi Australia said that it appeared that cars in Australia were not affected. Mr. Phillips said today that further checking in Japan had revealed that the reported Pajero brake hose problem had already been the subject of a recall in Australia. Approximately 80% of owners have already had their cars fixed since being first notified in July 1996, and his Company was assiduously following up outstanding owners.
