Mitsubishi’s Mirage recalled for brake, steering fix

Small problem: Mitsubishi will inspect the wheel speed sensors in about 3300 Mirage city cars.

MITSUBISHI is recalling more than 3300 of its city-friendly Mirage hatchbacks after noticing the front wheel speed sensors didn’t like wet weather.

The Japanese car-maker has identified a problem with the sensor harness on the wheel, with moisture creeping in due to “insufficient waterproofing”.

In turn, this would “allow moisture to penetrate the sensor resulting in abnormal output signal”.

“This may result in various false warnings signals to illuminate on the dashboard,” Mitsubishi said in a document filed with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

“In addition, the braking force could reduce and/or steering control could become unstable and pose a crash hazard to the driver and other road users.” The car-maker said owners would be notified of the recall by letter, and invited to arrange an inspection and repair.
