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!

General Motors is recalling 49,000 trucks worldwide due to a fuel leak.
The recall includes the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra 3500 from years 2011-2015.
These vehicles contain dual fuel tanks. The first fuel tank low fuel indicator may become stuck, causing the second fuel tank to overfill the first. This could cause the first fuel tank to expand and touch the drive shaft, creating a hole and potential fuel leak. This increases the risk of fire.
Owners will not begin to be notified until December 18th, ONE WHOLE MONTH from now. This is especially a problem for the holiday season as drivers may be traveling via their cars.

The first recall involved the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve and its heater, and the second recall involved the wires controlling the system of air flow for the heater and air conditioner unit. Both issues caused fires in multiple vehicles over the years, and finally BMW is piecing the information together and taking fault. What were thought to be isolated and unrelated incidents are now discovered to be incidents all due to these PCV valve and heater/air conditioner wiring issues.
Unlike many other vehicle recalls involving issues that caused fire, these fires start when the vehicle is idle for a span of time. However, that span of time can be as long as a few days or as short as a few hours.
The vehicles included in the recall are the 128i from 2008 through 2011; and the 328i, 525i, 528i, 530i, X3. X5 and Z4 from 2007 through 2011.
BMW is expected to begin fixing the issue on December 18th, so owners beware! For over 1 month, your vehicle is at risk of fire.
