Mitsubishi has recalled 531 Endeavor model vehicles from the 2010 model year as a result of certain vehicles having potentially defective airbags. Specifically, the recall results from the retainer bracket for seat-mounted airbags on both the driver and passenger side airbags being incorrectly welded. If the faulty welding condition exists in a vehicle, the side airbags may not deploy correctly in a side impact crash, possibly resulting in serious injury to an occupant.
The vehicles involved were manufactured by Mitsubishi between May 26 and July 28, 2009. Mitsubishi began notifying owners within the last week and issued a "stop sale" on all 2010 Endeavors until all potentially effected vehicles can be inspected.
Any of the recalled vehicles will be inspected by a Mitsubishi dealer and repaired at no charge to the customer. Customers can contact the Mitsubishi Customer Relations Department at 1-888-648-7820.
