UK: Mitsubishi's recall includes 42,674 European cars

By just-auto.com editorial team | 21 May 2001

The worldwide recall of 299,335 Mitsubishi Chariot-based minivans made since September 1998 includes 35,437 Space Wagon and 7,237 Space Runner-badged versions sold in Europe.

Even though no faults have been reported on the Continent or amongst the 2,808 UK Space Wagons (300 still in importer stock), the cars will be recalled to check for small cracks around the fuel tank mounting plates.

The Europe-only Space Runner will also be checked for damage to a valve on the upper side of the tank as a result of the tank coming loose.

Mitsubishi distributors will write to owners once repair parts become available.
