M'bishi Motors to recall 1.2 mln cars to fix engine part
TOKYO Dec 19 (Reuters) - Mitsubishi Motors will recall about 1.2 million 660 cc minicar vehicles sold in Japan due to problems in engine oil seals, a part that prevents engine oil from leaking, the Japanese automaker said on Wednesday.
The pullback is likely to cost Mitsubishi about 7.5 billion yen ($89.3 million), and the costs have yet to be included in the firm's 2012/13 forecast, the company said in a statement.
Mitsubishi will recall some Minica and Minicab models, as well as other 660 cc models, sold in Japan between 1996 to 2004.
No vehicles are affected outside of Japan, a Mitsubishi spokesman said.
