— Mitsubishi is recalling almost 2,000 i-MiEV electric cars to replace passenger-side Takata airbag inflators.

Takata recently expanded its recalls by another 5.7 million airbags, and this Mitsubishi recall is a small part of that expansion.

Dealers will eventually replace the front passenger airbag inflators, but until then, owners with questions should call Mitsubishi at 888-648-7820 and ask about recall number SR-17-001. has complaints about more than 25 models of Mitsubishi vehicles.
