SEOUL, June 15 (Yonhap) -- Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and Mercedes-Benz Korea have been ordered to recall nearly 900 vehicles in South Korea for faulty parts, the transport ministry said Thursday.

This is the latest in a series of recall orders issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport against both domestic and foreign carmakers.

The carmakers plan to recall four different models totaling 892 units. The subjected models include the Mitsubishi Outlander sedan and Mercedes-Benz's SLC 200, the ministry said in a statement.

The problems range from faulty windshield wipers to software failure in electronic stability program (ESP), it said.

ESP is a computerized technology that improves a vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction or skidding.

Starting Friday, vehicle owners can visit designated repair and service centers to replace the parts free of charge, it said.
