11/10/17 Electrical and Air Conditioning 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.

Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
10/03/16 Electrical and Air Conditioning Mitsubishi motors north america, inc. (mmna) is recalling certain model year 2017 mirage vehicles manufactured october 28, 2015, to august 4, 2016 and equipped with high intensity discharge (hid) headlamps. the affected vehicles may have been assembled without the headlight horizontal adjustment lockout clips properly secured. as such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirement of federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) number 108, "lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."

Without the horizontal adjustment locking clip being secured, the headlight can be adjusted to either reduce the driver's visibility or blind oncoming vehicles. both conditions can increase the risk of a crash.

Mmna will notify owners, and dealers will secure the horizontal locking clips as necessary, free of charge. the recall began on september 3, 2016. owners may contact mmna customer service at 1-888-648-7820. mmna's number for this recall is sr-16-008.

02/02/16 Electrical and Air Conditioning Mitsubishi motors north america, inc. (mmna) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 mitsubishi mirage vehicles manufactured july 27, 2013, to september 2, 2015. if the driver enters an affected vehicle with their feet covered water and salt, it may soak through the carpet and cause corrosion to a wiring connector located in a junction box behind a kick panel to the left of the driver's footrest.

In the event of a crash, corrosion of the connector could delay deployment of the frontal air bags, increasing the risk of injury to the driver and the front seat passenger.

Mmna will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the affected connectors, replacing any found to be corroded. a waterproof sheet will be installed over the connectors to prevent future corrosion. these repairs will be performed free of charge. the recall is expected to begin in february 2016. owners may contact mmna customer service at 1-888-648-7820. mmna's number for this recall is sr-16-001.

In the event of a crash, an air bag that does not deploy or deploys late, increases the risk of occupant injury.

Mitsubishi Mirage Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
