Vehicles Affected: Approximately 83,500 model-year 2014-18 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchbacks
The Problem: The internal acceleration sensor in the safety restraint system electronic control unit can misinterpret vibrations to be a sensor error, thereby disabling the airbags from deploying in a crash and increasing the risk of injury.
The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the safety restraint system's software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mitsubishi will begin notifying owners this month. Owners can call the automaker at 888-648-7820, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
