Subaru recall affects nearly 8,600 vehicles. Included in the recall are the following models:
All the vehicles are equipped with front passenger airbag inflators that were manufactured by the supplier Takata.
The problem that affects all these vehicles is that excessive internal pressure may make the airbag inflator rupture when the airbag deploys. If this condition occurs, the metal fragments of the airbag may hit the passenger s, resulting in serious injuries and even fatalities. Hence, with this Subaru recall, the automaker joined several other automakers whose vehicles are also affected by the issue.
The automaker has not provided a schedule for notification letters; however, all the affected owners will be contacted soon. The dealers will inspect affected vehicles and replace the faulty inflators free of charge. Concerned owners may contact the automaker at 800-782-2783 for more details.
