    New Recall-NHTSA 17v686 (SRS / airbag system)

    This is for 14-17 Mirages.

    Nov 02,2017
    Manufacturer Recall NumberSR-17-006
    NHTSA Recall Number17V686
    Recall StatusRecall Incomplete
    Summary
    THE SELF-DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION USED BY THE INTERNAL ACCELERATION SENSOR IN THE SRS-ECU MAY MISINTERPRET VIBRATION CAUSED BY SEVERE ROAD CONDITIONS AND/OR DRIVING ON A FLAT TIRE TO BE A MALFUNCTION IN THE SRS-ECU. IF THIS OCCURS, THE SRS WARNING LAMP WILL ILLUMINATE AND NONE OF THE SEVEN AIRBAGS AVAILABLE IN THE VEHICLE WILL DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

    Safety Risk
    THE AIRBAGS (FRONTAL/KNEE/SIDE/SIDE CURTAIN) WILL NOT DEPLOY INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH IN A CRASH.

    Remedy
    OWNERS OF ALL AFFECTED VEHICLES WILL BE NOTIFIED AND ENCOURAGED TO BRING THEIR VEHICLES IN TO REPROGRAM THE SRS-ECU SOFTWARE WITH COUNTERMEASURE SOFTWARE. THE REPAIR WILL BE PERFORMED AT NO CHARGE TO VEHICLE OWNERS. OWNERS SEEKING REIMBURSEMENT FOR ANY EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS RECALL WILL BE DIRECTED IN THE NOTIFICATION LETTER TO CONTACT THE MITSUBISHI CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT FOR REIMBURSEMENT CONSIDERATION.

    Manufacturer's Notes
    Visit Mitsubishi's website at http://www.mitsubishicars.com or call 1-888-648-7820 for more information.



    Just thought we'd all like to know!

    In the US you can usually go to this website: https://www.nhtsa.gov/

    But I don't find it there yet.

    This recall is not even a week old, so I bet most dealers don't know about it yet.

    Thanks, I found it on that site. I entered a vin from one of our cars and it showed up. Funny it doesn't show up on the transport Canada site but they give a list of sites to try: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehicle...ions-1412.html
