Mitsubishi NZ recalling Triton Ute for suspension fix

Mitsubishi NZ recalling Triton Ute for suspension fix

Mitsubishi NZ has this week confirmed the recall of its Triton utes for a fault that is considered to be relatively minor.

The recall affects all Triton variants built between October 2006 and January 2009 with a possible suspension fault the cause.

Around 3000 utes in NZ will be affected by the recall which will involve inspection of the suspension set-up. Apparently bolts in the ball joints of the suspension could become loose, leading to excessive knocking. In any extreme cases the fault could also lead to the ball joint becoming detached from the suspension arm, rendering the vehicle inoperable.

According to Daniel Cook, product spokesman for Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand, there have been no reported problems with the Triton’s suspension here in NZ.

Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand is gathering Triton ownership details from the transport registry and will contact the owners to organise for their utes to be taken to a local Mitsubishi dealer for repairs. There will be no charge for the service.
