Recall Alert : Mitsubishi 2017 Mirage

RECALL Subject : Headlamp Clips may not be Properly Secured

Report Receipt Date: SEP 19, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V675000
Component(s): EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 587


Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

SUMMARY:

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2017 Mirage vehicles manufactured October 28, 2015, to August 4, 2016 and equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps. The affected vehicles may have been assembled without the headlight horizontal adjustment lockout clips properly secured. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirement of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
CONSEQUENCE:
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.
REMEDY:
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.

Nitro Year: 2007 (1 of 91,815 sold in 07)
