Recalls for 2008 Mitsubishi Raider Quad GS
2008 MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE SPYDER
NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V337000
Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE
Manufacturer: Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.
Manufacture Dates: 12/23/2005 - 02/13/2009
Potential Units Affected: 74836
Defect Description:
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Eclipse vehicles manufactured April 20, 2005, to February 13, 2009, and 2007-2009 Eclipse Spyder vehicles manufactured December 23, 2005, to February 13, 2009. Due to corrosion inside the antil-lock brake system (ABS) unit, one or more of the internal valves may seize. In a braking event that uses the ABS, a seized valve would increase brake pedal travel and reduce braking ability.
Consequence:
A sudden reduction of braking performance may increase the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
MMNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, flush and clean the ABS hydraulic unit using high grade brake fluid, free of charge. If the inspection shows that the valves may seize, the ABS unit will be replaced. The recall began on July 21, 2015. Owners may contact MMNA customer service at 1-888-648-7820. MMNA's number for this recall is SR-15-004.
