This is in the news at the moment…. Basically over 100 people have claimed that their Mitsubishi Montero suffered from sudden unintended acceleration (SUA) which in turn caused a crash.
The main thrust of the current argument started after Mitsubishi Motors Philippines (MMP) announced its P60,000 pre-order discount on 9th November.
You have to realise that the Montero has been sold by the hundreds of thousands in lots of countries and has never had this incident occur.
This is the response of Mitsubishi Motors – http://www.carguide.ph/2015/12/there-is-no-sudden-unintended.html
And this is Philippines Top Gear take on it – http://www.topgear.com.ph/news/motoring-news/one-question-if-the-montero-sport-really-suffers-from-unintended-acceleration?ref=sub-section
I leave you to draw your own conclusions but if pushed Mitsubishi Motors will leave the Philippines with the loss of over 2000 jobs….
MMP think that it is driver stupidity/error that causes these SUA’s – Maybe this post should be filed under Philippine Stupidity as well?
