RepairPal Expert Overview
In states where salt is used on the roads, there may be a delay in air bag deployment during a crash. If air bag deployment is delayed in a crash, the driver or passenger could be injured.
We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall if you drive where salt is used on the roads; the air bag may not deploy properly. Please contact your Mitsubishi dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
Where heavy salt is used on the roads, the mixture of melted snow and salt may stick to the front impact sensors. Over time, this causes corrosion of the sensor, and could cause a possible delay in the deployment of the air bags in the event of a collision. The delay in deployment could cause an injury. Dealers will install new front air bag sensors with improved corrosion resistance. The recall began on November 27, 2009.
