Identifying features

See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

In extreme wet weather conditions (such as snow, ice and salt spray), the electric vacuum pump may corrode and deteriorate brake performance, which will illuminate the brake warning light and activate the audio warning alert.

What are the hazards?

If there is a loss of vacuum to the brake booster system, there may be increased stopping distance when the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Mitsubishi Motors Australia will contact affected owners in writing to present their vehicle to a preferred dealer to have the vehicle rectified, free of charge.
