2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The frontal air bag may delay deployment and the side curtain air bags may not deploy at all due to a fault with the impact sensors. This could increase risk of injury in an accident.
The brake vacuum pump may malfunction, resulting difficulty braking and longer stopping distances.
The braking performance may be reduced due to a failed brake system vacuum pump.
Certain 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV vehicles are being recalled because the side and curtain air bags may not deploy as intended in the event of a crash.
