Subaru Recall for Electrical Problems: Fire Risk

Subaru Starts 2013 with Major Recall

Electrical problem, fire risk impacts 634,000 vehicles.
In Subaru’s case, the latest service action involves 633,842 vehicles. In fact, the maker believes that only 53,999 of those actually have the defective puddle lamp wiring but it has been unable to clearly identify which vehicles those are because the lamps were installed by dealers and no accurate and complete records exists.  As a result, Subaru will contact owners of all 2009 through 2012 Forester and 2006 through 2012 Tribeca crossovers, as well as 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback models asking them to see if they have the optional puddle lamps. Those who do will need repairs. Those unsure may go to a dealer for inspection. Here is a link for more information:
