Mitsubishi Recalls 25,185 Mitsubishi Mirage Cars

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports about another recall.

Mitsubishi Motors is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Mitsubishi Mirage cars manufactured August 7, 2013, to September 2, 2015 for corrosion issues on connectors. 

If the driver enters an affected vehicle with their boots covered with snow mixed with road salt, the melting snow 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.

Affected Mitsubishi Mirage vehicles have originally been sold in, or ever registered in, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and District of Columbia.

Mitsubishi says that 25,185 cars are affected by this recall.

Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi Mirage is a small car. You definitely want the airbags to work perfectly in case of a crash.
