Defect: The accessory cargo mats in the third-seat and cargo area interferes with the latching integrity of the folding third seats. In the event of a crash, an occupant of the third seat may be at risk of ejection or enhanced injury.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the third-seat latch and striker. A rectangle will be removed from the cargo mat around each striker to provide adequate striker clearance and proper latching. Owner notification is expected to begin during the fall of 1998. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mitsubishi at 1-800-222-0037.
