Mitsubishi is recalling nearly 84,000 small cars in the U.S. because the air bags may not inflate in a crash.

The recall covers certain Mirage models from 2014 through 2018.

The company says the safety restraint computer can interpret road vibrations or a flat tire as a sensor error and disable the car’s seven air bags. If this happens, drivers would see a warning light on the dashboard.

Dealers will reprogram the computer at no cost to owners.

The recall is expected to start this month.
