Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) is recalling 2,108 model year 2012-2017 i-MiEVs.
Water may penetrate the brake assist vacuum pump, causing corrosion and a failure of the brake vacuum pump.
Without the brake vacuum pump, the driver will experience a sudden loss of braking assist, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake vacuum pump free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 7, 2020.
Owners may contact MMNA customer service at (888) 648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-19-002.
