All the problems relate to the brake system vacuum pump which in certain situations, it may fail. If this happens, you won’t lose control of your car but the brake distance will certainly get bigger.

Until now, there are no complaints or incidents happened due to this issue but of course, Mitsubishi can’t leave the situation like this.
