2024 Subaru Crosstrek, Impreza Recalled Over Fire Risk
In August 2023, Subaru announced that the redesigned 2024 Subaru Crosstrek and 2024 Subaru Impreza were being recalled for a potential short circuit in the instrument panel that could lead to a fire.
The recall affects approximately 35,357 Crosstrek and Impreza cars for the new model year. The 2024 Subaru Crosstrek accounts for 84% of the vehicles being recalled.
The problem is caused by a potentially defective wiring harness in the instrument panel that could rub against a bracket in the steering beam. Over time, the rubbing could chew away at the wire insulation, causing a short circuit that could lead to a fire, according to Subaru. If this were to occur while the vehicle was being driven, it could lose power and drivers might not be able to start the engine, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owners have been notified to take their Subaru to a dealer service center for an inspection. Dealers will add a clamp on the bracket, and add protective tape or replace the instrument panel, free of charge.
Subaru Crosstrek Seat Belt Recall
Subaru of America, Inc., is recalling certain Crosstrek SUVs for potentially defective seat belts which could fail during a crash, increasing the risk of severe injuries or death to the occupants.
This recall affects 2019 Subaru Crosstrek vehicles with rear seat belt assemblies with a dual-mode locking mechanism, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The seat belt webbing sensor locking mechanism on affected Subaru SUVs may not lock as intended, NHTSA said. In the event of a crash involving multiple impacts, the seat belt may not properly restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of injury.
Subaru is notifying owners and dealers will replace the rear seat belt assemblies, free of charge. This recall began on April 24, 2020.
