Mitsubishi Mirage recall includes the 2017 sedan.

Mitsubishi is recalling more than 26,000 of its 2017 to 2018 Mirage G4 cars because a software problem could disable all the vehicle’s seven airbags. The risk of injury to occupants increases if a vehicle’s airbags do not deploy in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Owners of affected vehicles may notice that the airbag warning light (which is labeled “SRS,” for “supplemental restraint system”) stays illuminated. Mitsubishi says it is unaware of any injuries related to this recall.

A similar recall for the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback was issued in 2017. 

The Details

Vehicles recalled: 26,016 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedans manufactured from March 24, 2016, through Nov. 28, 2017.

The problem: A software error may cause the vehicle’s airbag system to mistakenly interpret vibrations from a rough road or driving with a flat tire as an airbag malfunction. As a result, the system may disable all seven of the car’s airbags.

The fix: Mitsubishi dealers will update vehicle software free of charge to owners.

How to contact the manufacturer: Mitsubishi started notifying owners of affected vehicles by mail May 24, 2019. Dealerships are prepared to make the fix now. Owners may also contact Mitsubishi customer service at 888-648-7820. Mitsubishi’s own number for this recall is SR-19-001.

NHTSA campaign number: 19V33.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.

If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
