the problem: the software for the hydraulic unit's electronic control unit may be incorrect, possibly preventing the intervention of a safety system (such as automatic emergency braking, antilock braking, electronic stability control or the brake auto hold function) when any of these systems is in use, increasing the risk of a crash.
the fix: dealers will update the hydraulic unit ecu software for free.
what owners should do: mitsubishi will begin notifying owners on oct. 16. owners can call the automaker at 888-648-7820, the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
