CARS.COM — Vehicles affected by service bulletin:

  • 2012 Mitsubishi I-MiEV
  • 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage

The problem: The electrical resistance inside the impact sensor for the airbag system may have increased. As a result, abnormal communication may be detected, causing the supplemental restraint system warning light to illuminate. If a vehicle is involved in an accident when the SRS warning light is illuminated, frontal airbag deployment could be delayed and/or the side and curtain airbags may not deploy.

Corrective action: Dealers will replace the impact sensors for the SRS system.
