SR-18-007 - Prolonged Braking by Collision Avoidance System - 2017-2019 Mitsubishi

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V620
Manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE
Potential Number of Units Affected 9,166

 

Prolonged Braking by Collision Avoidance System

If the FCM-ECU software activates the brake for longer than necessary, the driver may react by applying additional braking. The resulting rapid deceleration of the vehicle can increase the risk of a rear-end collision.
