Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. “MMNA” is recalling certain 2014-2018 Mirage vehicles. The internal acceleration sensor in the Supplemental Restraint System “SRS” Electronic Control Unit “ECU” can misinterpret vibrations such as those from poor road conditions or a flat tire to be a sensor error thereby disabling the air bags from deploying in a crash.
Air bags that do not deploy as designed in a crash increase the risk of injury.
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the SRS-ECU software, free of charge. The recall began on November 10, 2017. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-17-006.
