Mitsubishi Motors Philippines clarifies about Montero Sport Unintended Acceleration cases
() - September 14, 2011 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) has received complaints of unintended acceleration on the Montero Sport.

Upon receiving these complaints on unintended acceleration, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) Japan dispatched its engineers last February to investigate the claim. The investigation yielded that all the components (Fuel Injection system, Pedal, Engine Control Unit or ECU, Wiring harness, etc.) and software are operating normally within specifications. MMC will also investigate the latest reported cases of unintended acceleration claims.

In addition, MMPC would like to note that the electronic throttle system of the Montero Sport has undergone extensive testing not only during its development but also during mass production to ensure that it will function the way it was designed to.

If you are a Montero Sport owner and are in any way bothered by these “Montero Sudden Acceleration” internet blogs, you may bring your vehicle to any Mitsubishi Motors service center nationwide for a free check up. Meantime, MMPC also encourages every owner/driver to read the owner’s manual as there are important reminders on the proper driving procedures most especially for automatic transmission vehicles (see www.mitsubishi-motors.com.ph/safety-reminders.php).

MMPC would like to assure the public that every vehicle developed by MMC and its components undergo extensive testing and are of the highest quality level and that the company is committed to the public’s utmost satisfaction and safety.
