Introduction. Despite allegations regarding cases of sudden unintended acceleration on some Mitubishi Montero Sport units, the company insists that their units are not defective. Executive vice president for Marketing of Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Junya Masuda, assistant vice president for operations of Fast Autoworld Philippines Corp. Rene Poro and senior manager for vehicle sales Jack Ramirez (left to right) unveiled the newest model at the SM Seaside City last Friday.
We welcome the creation by the Department of Trade and Industry of a panel to look into the alleged sudden unintended acceleration (SUA) issue involving our Montero Sport vehicles. This venue will give us the opportunity to present the result of our technical investigation, that there is no problem with the vehicle. We will fully cooperate with DTI on this matter.
This is not the first time this unfounded issue has been raised. Nonetheless, we take each incident seriously. Time and time again, we came to the same conclusion: THERE IS NO DESIGN, MECHANICAL NOR ELECTRONIC DEFECT IN OUR PRODUCT.
We have already presented our technical findings in various forums, and are open to all other independent and credible forums to show our commitment to producing only safe and quality vehicles. In light of the recent media attention, we embrace the chance to explain the facts again in the presence of the DTI investigating panel. We will make public all our findings to reassure out customers that the MONTERO SPORT is completely safe and reliable, and has no SUA issues.
In the meantime, for the peace of mind of all MONTERO SPORT customers, you may visit any of our service centers nationwide for a FREE CHECK-UP of your vehicle. During the check-up, our qualified personnel will reorient you on the best and safest way of operating the vehicle.
