Recall roundup: Mitsubishi i-MiEV in Canada image

Mitsubishi has recently announced a recall for the i-MiEV all-electric vehicle in Canada because of a safety software issue.

According to the Japanese based automaker and to a press release by Transport Canada, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV will have to be taken back to the dealers in Canada because the culprit is the sensor array which is controlled by the software for the Safety Restraint System or simply SRS, which makes the associated dashboard light turn on but when this light is on this means that none of the airbags work. The problem will be “solved” free of charge by Mitsubishi dealers in Canada and owners are advised to bring the car if they have encountered the problem. 49 units of the i-MiEV have been affected by this issue in Canada.

As a quick reminder, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV is an all-electric vehicle that is being sold by the car manufacturer worldwide, from Costa Rica to Japan and Europe. The Euro NCAP test results of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV revealed a 73 percent in adult occupant protection, 78 percent in child occupant protection, 48 percent in pedestrian protection and 86 percent in safety assists.
