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.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V620000

Manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Components ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE

Potential Number of Units Affected 9,166

Summary
