Mitsubishi has issued two recalls in Australia this week, with one concerning its Outlander and ASX SUVs while the other targets the Pajero 4WD.

For the Outlander and ASX, a total of 19,131 cars are on the recall list, built between April 2015 and March of last year.

Mitsubishi says the door latch assembly may not be up to the task, and may be susceptible to failure during higher temperatures.

Should this occur, the doors may be allowed to open while driving, potentially causing a hazard for the vehicle occupants and other road users.

For the Pajero, another 20,148 vehicles can now be found on the Takata airbag recall list.

As with the millions of other Takata recalls, the airbag’s inflator unit could rupture as the airbag deploys during a collision.

Inflator units are susceptible to moisture absorption, and a ruptured unit could shower the vehicle occupants with metal fragments leading to serious injury or even death.

Affected Pajeros were built between January 2010 and December 2012, and Mitsubishi intends to service the front passenger airbag during this latest recall.

For Mitsubishi, the latest Takata recall comes just weeks after a further 19,000 Pajeros were recalled for the same issue.

Mitsubishi will attempt to contact affected owners once the necessary parts become available, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or phone Mitsubishi Australia on 1300 131 211.
