Waterproofing problems lead to car recall

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Mitsubishi admitted that the problem would allow water to penetrate during washing and detailing.

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.

Mitsubishi admitted that the problem would allow water to penetrate during washing, detailing or a rainstorm. This would cause the ABS system to not function correctly.

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.
