Latino Traffic Report has learned that Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain 1998-2000 Montero vehicles. These vehicles were equipped with Non-Azide Driver air bag Inflators (NADI) and do not contain phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant. Due to a manufacturing issue, the NADI inflators may absorb moisture, causing the inflators to rupture or the air bag cushion to underinflate.
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin March 22, 2020. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-20-001.
