Description: WWZ10: Rear Gate Stays. During a quality review, Subaru discovered that the tailgate support stays, also known as tailgate struts, installed in your vehicle may not provide the total amount of support we had intended. Over time, the amount of support the tailgate stays provide may diminish, resulting in more effort needed to open and close the tailgate. It is also possible that the tailgate may unexpectedly begin to move downward after being placed in an upright position. This is not a safety-related recall. Remedy: In the interest of your satisfaction, we would like to install new tailgate stays that are designed to provide improved performance. The new tailgate stays will be installed at no cost to you.
Description: WQE41: Optional Genuine Subaru Puddle Lights. Subaru is recalling certain model year 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback vehicles, certain model year 2006 through 2012 Tribeca vehicles sold before January 2012, and certain model year 2009 through 2012 Forester vehicles sold before January 2012. Up to 78,650 of these vehicles may have been equipped with accessory puddle lights that, when illuminated, brighten the area under the doors of the vehicle. A short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s). Over time, migration of the moisture into the circuit board and/or into the connector cavity, may result in a short circuit of the puddle light system. This may generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire. Remedy: Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional fused-harness, free of charge. The recall began February 19, 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.
Description: Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Tribeca vehicles manufactured November 16, 2004, to January 27, 2014. Due to a possible malfunction of the hood safety system and hood lock system, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving. If the hood unexpectedly opens while driving, it may interfere with the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Remedy: Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will complete this recall in two phases. Phase one will involve inspection, cleaning, and lubricating the hood safety and hood lock systems. If after this is performed the hood latch does not operate properly, it will be replaced with a new current style part. Phase two will involve installing an improved hood safety system and hood lock system. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's number for this recall is WQX-59 (phase one) and WQY-60 (phase two).
