Mitsubishi fuel labelling investigation

Bannister Law investigates class action concerning Mitsubishi MQ Triton GLS (4×4) models

Bannister Law is investigating a potential class action against Mitsubishi Motors Australia Pty Ltd for fuel labels that may be misleading consumers.

On 27 May 2019, Mr Zelko Begovic took Berwick Mitsubishi and Mitsubishi Motors Australia Pty Ltd to Tribunal, alleging that his actual fuel consumption for his new Mitsubishi MQ Triton 4×4 GLS DID Auto DC-PU was significantly higher than the fuel represented on the fuel label and therefore the label was misleading.

Mr Begovic had experienced an average of 12.44L/100km during Extra Urban driving. Mr Begovic was expecting the vehicle to achieve 8.5L/100km on Extra Urban considering the driving conditions. The vehicle label stated 6.8L/100km

The Tribunal found that Mr Begovic was misled by the label and was accordingly entitled to reject the vehicle and obtain a refund of his purchase price of $39,500 from the dealer.

Bannister Law is interested to hear from any Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4×4) owners who purchased their vehicle between 2015 to 2019 and have experienced the same issue as Mr Begovic – higher than expected fuel consumption.
