    Bloody disgraceful that MMAL just close their eyes to it. You could guesstimate that nearly every 380 manufactured would have had at least one reg replaced. Not including my 2.
    How many could that be and how many dollars spent by owners?
    Thats my rant for the day

    At least they are on the cheaper side. I guess MMAL thought they better not push their luck with the pricing on these.

    31000 odd 380s. Average say 1.5 per car. That would make 45000 regulators!

    They appear to mostly fail within the 6 years 130,000km warranty period, so for most people it’s a warranty job. For those that are unlucky thankfully they are not a $500 part like some imported vehicles are.

    When I got my second rear window done, MMAL had around 3,500 spare of the rear right and around 4,000 spare of the rear left.

    Remember recalls are only mandated for safety related items such as fuel related issues.

    We're starting to get a few more 380s on the Aussie market (following 4-5 years on lease) and at the fleet company i work for, we are actually finding that the residual value is going up slightly - I guess the market is realising the quality of the vehicle. It's such a shame they're no longer manufactured, i would love MMAL parts and upgrade support

    ive been rehearsing this quote to use on my local Mitsi dealer when im up for a new reg.

    im hoping for an out of warranty free replacement when the time comes, not sure if it'll work though
