Mitsubishi Motors to Recall 250,000 Vehicles in Japan

Faulty engine part could trigger an oil leakage which could cause parts inside the engine to burn

Japan's fourth-largest automaker Mitsubishi Motors will recall about 250,000 vehicles in Japan over engine oil leaks, the transport ministry said on Oct. 11.

The recall will cover seven small models, such as the family-sized eK Wagon, as well as two models produced for the Nissan Motor brand, the Otti and Clipper. A total of 247,663 units will be recalled, according to the ministry.

Mitsubishi said a faulty engine part could trigger an oil leakage and light up the oil pressure gauge on the dashboard. "Continued use may cause parts inside the engine to burn and the vehicle may cease to operate," Mitsubishi said.

The recall covers vehicles produced from November 2003 through to August 2005, the company said.
