Problem description:

The NADI (non-azide driver inflator) type airbag may have improper sealing that could allow moisture to enter into the propellant.

If the propellant afterwards dries out, it could lead to decreased density resulting in a too high burn rate. Consequently, the airbag may not deploy as designed and provide less protection, increasing the risk of injury.

The MY 1996 – 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer models are affected by this recall.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mitsubishi dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
