Mitsubishi Motors Corp. is recalling 400,000 vehicles in Japan because a part could cause the engine to stop when the vehicle is not in motion, say reports. Seven models are affected, including the Dion minivan and the Legnum and Galant sedans. Mitsubishi is calling this a “service campaign” because it says the problem is not serious enough to warrant a full recall. Cost is estimated at Y2 billion ($16.2 million).
