Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has announced a ‘field fix campaign’ for 1,869 Mitsubishi Mirage cars sold from November 6 last year to March 31, 2013, in which a preventive measure will be undertaken to replace the car’s front wheel speed sensor.

The recall exercise, initiated by Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) in Japan, seeks to address an issue in which imperfections found in the front wheel speed sensor could partially compromise the braking performance of the Mirage. No incidents have been reported in Malaysia, but the company says the exercise is necessary as a safety measure.

MMM says that every Mirage undergoing this campaign will be thoroughly checked and affected components replaced, with full cost to be borne by Mitsubishi Motors for the rectification.
