    Subaru Recalls Some Forester Vehicles Over Electrical Issue

    Subaru has recalled more than 360,000 Forester vehicles with heated seats over an electrical issue that can deactivate the airbags.

    (Published Friday, Oct. 11, 2019)

    Subaru is recalling more than 350,000 Forester vehicles with heated seats because an electrical connection in the front passenger seat may loosen and deactivate the airbag even though the seat is occupied.

    Subaru said the recall includes Forester vehicles from 2015 to 2018.

    The automaker will notify vehicle owners and dealers to inspect the occupant detection system mat harness and have it replaced free of charge if necessary.

    Owners will be notified of the recall starting on Nov. 29. Replacement parts are not currently available. A second recall notice will be sent when the parts are available.
