Recall 19V330000

Air Bag System Becomes Disabled And Will Not Deploy In An Accident

Recall Details

The vehicle's Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) has an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) that can experience a malfunction with its internal acceleration sensor. This sensor can misinterpret vibrations from poor road conditions or a flat tire, for example, and cause the air bags of the vehicle to become deactivated incorrectly. Dealers will reprogram the SRS-ECU software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) of the vehicle has an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) that can malfunction, disabling the vehicle's air bags and preventing them from deploying. If the air bags do not deploy when needed in an accident, there is an increased risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Mitsubishi must be performed by a Mitsubishi dealership. Mitsubishi will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in May, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Mitsubishi dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
