Mitsubishi Australia has this week confirmed the recall of 42,525 Triton utes, the largest vehicle recall in Australia in recent years. Despite the number of vehicles affected, the fault is considered to be relatively minor.

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

According to Mitsubishi, bolts in the ball joints of the suspension may become loose, leading to excessive knocking. The fault could also lead to the ball joint becoming detached from the suspension arm, rendering the vehicle inoperable.

Speaking with TMR today, Mitsubishi Australia's Lenore Fletcher confirmed that the company has had no reports of incidents resulting from the possible fault.

"In the case of this issue, if the bolts in question do become loose, it causes quite a bit of noise to come into the cabin," Ms Fletcher said.

"The first thing the driver will notice is a very obvious noise, and as a result, the vehicle is unlikely to be driven to the point where an incident could occur. We've had no reports of any incidents, and the number is expected to be very small."

Mitsubishi Australia has confirmed it is contacting owners by mail this month, as well as placing advertisements advising owners to contact their local dealer.

Other recent recalls in Australia have included the Toyota Prius, and CVT-equipped variants of the Subaru Liberty and Outback.
