Mitsubishi Australia has asked owners of 8081 older Mirage and Lancer cars, Pajero SUVs, Express vans and Starwagon people movers that could be fitted with potentially deadly airbags to “stop driving immediately”, going as far as offering to buy them back.

Affected examples of the CE Mirage (MY97-00), CE Lancer (MY97-00), NL Pajero (MY97-00), WA Express (MY97-00) and WA Starwagon (MY97-00) were manufactured between May 31, 1996, and September 30, 1991, and sold from July 22, 1996, to July 5, 2001.


...this type of airbag inflator could rupture and then cause sharp metal fragments to enter a vehicle’s cabin at high speed, either injuring and/or killing occupants.


Probably worth $50 at todays value.
