After talking earlier today about the fact that recalls will be made mandatory in the European Union, Mitsubishi and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) from the United States have announced that they are calling back into service 6,903 Lancer models.

The recall, which applies to any of the vehicles made during 2008 and 2009, including versions like Evolution, Ralliart, and Sportback Ralliart, besides the normal one, is due to an improperly attached fuel pipe, which, after running the engine at certain speeds and causing vibrations, will make it crack, spilling the fuel onto the hot motor, thus generating a big fire.

Mitsubishi dealers are now instructed to call back the models they have sold and replace the fuel pipe, while adding two new brackets in order to make sure that any vibrations from the motor won’t lead to any new cracks in it. All of the process will be completely free of charge, so Lancer owners can rest safe. You can contact the manufacturer at 1-888-648-7820, or you can contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.

Hopefully this dangerous problem will be fixed and everyone driving a Lancer in the United States can rest safely once more and enjoy their Japanese car.

Who says policemen can’t also have fun while working? Especially the ones from the South Yorkshire Police department in the UK, who have just received three brand new, Police spec Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X. Not to mention that the department also had Evo VIII and Evo X in their garage. The new cars will be used in the Road Crime Unit in cases invloving drugs and car theft. Inspector Slack said: “The Evo X was the car of choice because of its excellent pursuit capabilities and the fact that so much time and effort has been put into maximizing performance whilst minimising the risk of accidents”.

This weekend, at Castle Combe Racing Circuit in Wiltshire, England, MLR (Mitsubishi Lancer Register) has set a new world record for the largest parade of Mitsubishi Evos. Though less than expected, 273 Evos , grouped by color, drove for 2 miles at constant speed and managed to brake the record and also raise £7,459.27 for the Richard Burns Foundation, with a big support from Mitsubishi Motors UK.

The record was confirmed by Buiness World Records and Darin Frow, the MLR Chairman said that “it has taken a small team of MLR members a huge amount of time and effort over the last year to pull this World Record attempt together, but to see it finally come to life on Saturday was incredible [..] Everyone involved had a great day and to see so many Evos on track all at once whilst history was in the making was truly spectacular. We were delighted with the support we received from Mitsubishi UK and for their generous contribution to our chosen charity.”
