Mitsubishi has released a recall for a limited number of 2016 - 2018 Outlander and 2018 and 2019 Eclipse models, built from August 2016 to June 2018. The recall involves vehicles equipped with a forward collision mitigation (FCM) system that detects pedestrians.
Due to incorrect software, the FCM-ECU unit may apply braking for longer than needed, even after a pedestrian is no longer detected. If the FCM-ECU software activates the brakes for longer than necessary, the driver may react by applying additional braking.
The resulting rapid deceleration of the vehicle can increase the risk of a rear-end collision.
