Mitsubishi ASX (2018)

Published on 9 November 2018

1. The software in the Active Stability Control (ASC) system may be faulty. As a consequence, the adaptive cruise control (ACC), forward – collision mitigation (FCM) and anti-lock braking system (ABS) may not work properly which may lead to accidents.

2. The software of the forward-collision mitigation (FCM) system of the engine control unit (ECU) may be faulty. As a consequence, the FCM-ECU software may activate the brake for longer than necessary and the driver may react by applying additional braking. The resulting rapid deceleration of the vehicle can increase the risk of rear-end collision.

The recall affects MY 2018 vehicles.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mitsubishi dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle


UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
