If the safety systems do not function as intended, it can increase the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 18V621000

Manufacturer Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Components SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL, FORWARD COLLISION AVOIDANCE

Potential Number of Units Affected 58,916

Summary

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles equipped with a Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) system and 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Eclipse Cross vehicles and 2017-2018 Outlander vehicles equipped with an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system and/or an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system. The software for the Hydraulic Unit Electronic Control Unit (ECU) may be incorrect, possibly preventing the intervention of a safety system such as automatic emergency braking, Anti-lock Braking (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), or the Brake Auto Hold (BAH) function when any of these systems are in use.

Remedy

MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will update the Hydraulic Unit-ECU software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2018. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-18-008.

I have sent a message via facebook to Mitsubishi Australia to see if Aussies are also effected.

I will post their reply when received.
