Mitsubishi has recalled its Triton pickup and Pajero Sport 4WD models with genuine Mitsubishi towbars, built for the 2016 model-year.

The carmaker has identified a weakness with the fitted flange head bolts, which may work their way lose over time.

Should this occur, the towbar may become detached from the vehicle, creating a hazard for the vehicle’s occupants and other road-users.

Both the MQ Triton and QE Pajero Sport are affected.

Mitsubishi Australia says that while some customers have reported instances of lose towbar fittings, there are no reports to date of towbars becoming detached from vehicles.

The carmaker has developed a new set of fixings for the genuine towbar package, and these are available now at Mitsubishi dealers.

The MQ Triton was also recalled in November last year for an issue with the genuine soft tonneau cover.

Mitsubishi has commenced the recall program by attempting to contact affected customers by mail, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
