Recall Alert: 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV

Mitsubishi is recalling 1,402 model-year 2012 versions of the i-MiEV compact electric car due to problems with the brakes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Dec. 2, 2011, through Sept. 7, 2012 (check your vehicle's build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), and have a brake system vacuum pump that could fail. This could cause the brakes to fail, increasing the risk of an accident. According to Mitsubishi, no related accidents have been reported.

Mitsubishi has not yet provided an owner notification schedule due to parts availability, but dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
