09_Mitsubishi_Eclipse_Spyder_Recall.png 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder; | Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 75,000 model-year 2006-09 Mitsubishi Eclipse sports cars manufactured April 20, 2005, to Feb. 13, 2009, and 2007-09 Eclipse Spyder sports cars manufactured from Dec. 23, 2005, to Feb. 13, 2009

The Problem: Corrosion inside the antilock brake unit may cause one or more of the internal valves to seize. During a braking event that activates the ABS, a seized valve would increase brake pedal travel and reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect, flush and clean the ABS hydraulic unit free of charge; if the inspection shows that the valves may seize, the ABS unit will be replaced.

What Owners Should Do: Mitsubishi has not yet released an owner notification schedule. For more information, owners should call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
