Mitsubishi Philippines Announces Recall of Xpander MPVs
Mitsubishi Motors Philippines has announced a recall of Xpander MPV units purchased from May 2018 to October 22, 2019 due to a defective fuel pump installed in them. The recall has been officialized after the carmaker identified the models affected.
After its investigation, they have found that the plastic impeller on the inside of the fuel pump can inflate, and this stops the pump from rotating, causing the engine to stall or fail to start. The defective fuel pumps are found to have plastic impellers with a low molecular density causing the inflation.
Mitsubishi says they will replace the fuel pump free of charge. This procedure will take approximately 72 minutes subject to the availability of service bays, and of the replacement fuel pump. The Japanese auto giant also says the fuel pump replacement may be done during the Preventive Maintenance Service or PMS as well.
To ensure smooth servicing, customers are encouraged to call their preferred Mitsubishi Service Center to arrange an appointment. For additional concerns or inquiries, customers may call the Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Customer Care Center at +63 8250 8888 Mondays to Fridays 7 AM to 3:30 PM.
