Mitsubishi recall for 2015 ASX and 2016 Outlander due to brake fears

Mitsubishi has issued an urgent recall of two of its popular SUVs due to faulty brakes which could potentially cause death to drivers and their families. 

The company's 2015 ASX and 2016 Outlander models have been subject to the recall which were sold around Australia between February 23, 2016 to November 30, 2016. 

A total of 8,847 cars are affected by the recall.

Product Safety Australia issued a statement warning customers that the car's brakes might not work due to the failure of the anti-rust coating. 

'The anti-rust coating (Fluorine) may allow rust to form on the parking brake shaft,' the statement read.

'As a result, the parking brake shaft may become stuck and may not engage.' 

They warned that even if the car is placed into park mode, it could still move. 

'This may increase the risk of an accident, which may result in an injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders,' the warning reads.

The company is contacting all owners by mail to asking them to bring their cars for a free inspection and repair.
