Mitsubishi is recalling 587 2017-model year Mirage cars equipped with high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The cars may have been assembled without the headlight horizontal adjustment lockout clips properly secured. As a result, a headlight can be adjusted to either reduce the driver’s visibility or blind oncoming vehicles, NHTSA said. This condition is not compliant with all federal safety standards.

The cars at issue were manufactured from Oct. 28, 2015, to Aug. 4, 2016.

Mitsubishi dealers will secure the horizontal locking clips as needed, free of charge. Car owners can reach Mitsubishi customer service at (888) 648-7820. Mitsubishi Motors North America’s number for this recall is SR-16-008.
