2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV: Recall
August 09, 2012
Mitsubishi is recalling 261 i MiEVs because the side and curtain air bags may not deploy in a crash, according to the NHTSA.
No date has been set yet but Mitsubishi dealers will replace incompatible air bag sensors in the affected vehicles with new units.
Mitsubishi told federal safety regulators that there are no known claims in the U.S. involving potentially incompatible air bag sensors and that "Any customer experiencing this condition will be alerted by illumination of the SRS warning lamp."
No word yet if we have one of the 261 cars.
