Mitsubishi Electric Cars Recalled for Brake Issues

By Grant Law Office on February 12, 2013

Mitsubishi has issued an auto recall for their electric cars because of defective brakes that can pose serious hazards. According to The Associated Press, Mitsubishi is recalling 1,400 i-MiEV cars made between December 2, 2011 and September 7, 2012. Officials say the vehicles have a defective vacuum pump that can stop working. When this occurs, the braking power will be affected and the stopping distance will be greatly increased.

Mitsubishi says no crashes or injuries have been reported because of this defect and that the issue was only uncovered after a complaint was filed by a customer in Japan. Anyone with one of these potentially dangerous vehicles can have their pump replaced, free of charge.

The i-MiEV is not the first electric car to be recalled in recent years. The electric car maker Fisker Automotive recalled 239 Karma vehicles in December of 2011 for issues with a hose clip in their battery units that could result in a coolant leak or car fire. Coda Automotive recalled 78 vehicles from model year 2012 that had side curtain airbags that were not installed properly. The Norwegian car maker Think issued three recalls in as many months in 2011 for defective safety belts and improperly adjusted transmissions.

If you are injured because of a defective auto part or mechanical malfunction, it may be in your best interest to preserve the vehicle for a thorough investigation and to contact an experienced product liability attorney. Financial compensation may be available for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
