The fault could cause the rear-view camera to no longer function while reversing, according to the recall notice.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia has recalled 6552 examples of its 2021-2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, citing a potential fault with the vehicle’s reversing camera.
The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a software issue with the In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) unit, the rear-view camera display may not display the rear camera image as intended.
“If the rear-view camera display does not display the rear camera image while reversing the vehicle, it could increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to any persons located behind the vehicle.”
A full list of vehicle identification numbers for the 6552 vehicles involved in the recall can be found here.
Mitsubishi Australia says it will contact owners in writing and advise them to present their vehicle to their preferred Mitsubishi Motors dealer to have the IVI software updated, free of charge.
Owners can contact Mitsubishi Australia’s customer service team by calling 1300 131 211 or emailing email@example.com.
