Mitsubishi L200 recall: Security flaw leads to June recall

Thousands of Mitsubishi L200 pick-ups are being recalled over a security flaw that may result in the doors not latching correctly or opening in the summer heat.

The safety fault affects all single and double cab L200 models built between December 2015 and July 2016; Mitsubishi is in the process of contacting all 4676 owners to ask them to return their vehicle for free recall work.

The problem is thought to involve the locking mechanism in the latch assembly, with the door not operating properly in high temperatures. This could cause the door to not latch correctly or unintentionally open whilst driving. To rectify the fault Mitsubishi will replace the entire door latch mechanism.

Peugeot is also recalling Partner vans over an airbag problem, after it discovered an internal component within the airbag triggering ECU may have been damaged which could result in the airbag not inflating in the event of an accident. Peugeot has promised to replace the ECUs in affected vans for free.
