April 12, 2013

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. recalled more than 1,000 Mirage GLS cars due to a brake system flaw, bworldonline.com reported.

The April 5 story stated that the safety recall was needed to replace front wheel speed sensors. The sensors were found to have insufficient waterproofing.

The affected vehicles were sold from November 2012 to March 2013, and the Japan-based Mitsubishi Motors Corp. decided to do a voluntary safety recall to show commitment to quality and customer safety.
