Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) is recalling 587 model year 2017 Mirages manufactured October 28, 2015, to August 4, 2016 and equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps.
The vehicles may have been assembled without the headlight horizontal adjustment lockout clips properly secured. As such, the vehicles fail to comply with the requirement of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Without the horizontal adjustment locking clip being secured, the headlight can be adjusted to either reduce the driver's visibility or blind oncoming vehicles. Both conditions can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will secure the horizontal locking clips as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-16-008.
