Three models of Mitsubishi vehicles sold in Hong Kong have been included in a widened recall by the Japanese carmaker. Super Exceed vans made before September 1994, Lancer diesel taxis made before August 1993, and Galant sedans made from November 1996 to February 1997 have to be sent back to the dealer. Mitsubishi Motors distributor Universal Cars, estimated that there were 72 affected vehicles, including 40 Lancer diesel taxis. A company spokeswoman said most of the taxis, which had a defect in the engine oil cooler hose, were already off the streets. There are 31 Super Exceeds and one Galant affected by the recall. The rear brake line in the Super Exceeds might foul the shock absorber, resulting in possible damage. The Galant has a defective passenger air bag that could result in delayed deployment. Other vehicles currently sold in Hong Kong are not affected by the recall, which is part of a larger recall of 507,000 vehicles announced last week after the company found evidence that executives covered up safety-related defects.
