The latest recall effects the Galant, Magna and Verada sedan models built between 1996 to 2005 and were exported throughout Asia.
In 2001, a man sitting in the passenger seat suffered a minor burn to the hand. In 2002, a woman's shin was slightly burned, a company spokesman said on condition of anonymity.
Mitsubishi Motors also reported another recall for 95,000 Colt compacts manufactured from 2002 to 2004 for a defect with the ignition key. There were no accidents related to the defect, but 98 problems were reported.
None of the defected models were exported to Europe.
