Vehicles Affected: Approximately 14,000 model-year 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchbacks manufactured between July 27 and Nov. 20, 2013, and model-year 2012 i-MiEV plug-in electric hatchbacks manufactured between Oct. 28, 2011, and Sept. 7, 2012
The Problem: Due to an increased resistance in the impact sensor from the airbag system, the frontal airbag may have a delayed deployment or the side and side curtain airbags may not deploy at all, increasing the risk of an injury in a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the affected impact sensors for free.
