Mitsubishi Motors Corp.’s Australian subsidiary has begun recalling Galant passenger cars imported in 1993 and 1994 to repair a front suspension problem, a company spokesman said Monday.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd. spokesman Ian Glover said the company had been forced to assess all models imported from Japan following revelations from Mitsubishi’s Tokyo headquarters that customers’ complaints about its products had been covered up for three decades.

Announcements were placed in major Australian newspapers Monday informing customers of the possible suspension problem and telling them to contact their nearest Mitsubishi dealers.

Glover said the Galant recall would involve around 3,000 cars and letters would be sent to all registered owners.

Another recall is being held for Mitsubishi Lancers, which could have a loose pulley bolt in the engine, he said.
