Mitsubishi Motors North America is recalling certain model year 2012 i-MiEV electric vehicles that were manufactured from Dec. 2, 2011, through Sept. 7, 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The brake system vacuum pump on those vehicles may fail, rendering the vacuum pump inoperable.
If the vacuum pump system fails, the recall notice says, it will reduce available brake power, which would result in lengthened stopping distances and could increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
Mitsubishi will notify owners of the recall and dealers will replace the affected vacuum pumps free of charge.
Mitsubishi has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at (888) 648-7820 for additional information.
