Mitsubishi is recalling nearly 84,000 Mirage models from 2014-2018 in the U.S.
A safety restraint computer error is reading road vibrations or a flat tire as a sensor error, thus turning off the vehicle airbags. So if the computer sensor reads the road as vibrating in the midst of a crash, it would shut off all airbags.
Mitsubishi has not released if any crashes or injuries have occurred due to recall.
Mitsubishi dealerships will reprogram the computer to fix the error, but notices are not going out until next month.
As families are traveling for the holidays, their airbags may not function correctly. Don’t wait to be notified!
