Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,100 model-year 2012-17 Mitsubishi i-MiEV hatchbacks
The Problem: Water may penetrate the brake assist vacuum pump, causing corrosion, a failure of the brake vacuum pump and a sudden loss of braking assist, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake vacuum pump for free.
