Additional information:

Among the 84 recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

Mitsubishi Motors North America (“MMNA”) has recalled an estimated 9,166 model year 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Outlander Sport, 2018-2019 Eclipse Cross, and 2017-2018 Outlander vehicles equipped with a Forward Collision Mitigation (“FCM”) system that detects pedestrians. Due to incorrect software, the FCM-ECU (Electronic Control Unit) may apply braking for longer than needed, even after a pedestrian is no longer detected.

According to the NHTSA, if the FCM-ECU software activates the brake for longer than necessary, the driver may react by applying additional braking. The resulting rapid deceleration of the vehicle can increase the risk of a rear-end collision.

MMNA will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the FCM-ECU software with updated software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2018. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA’s number for this recall is SR-18-007.
