Subaru Recalls 1.3M Vehicles
March 4, 2019—Subaru is recalling 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. because the brake lights may not illuminate properly, reported The Detroit Free Press.
The recall covers certain 2014 to 2016 Forester, 2008 through 2016 Impreza, and 2013 through 2017 Crosstrek vehicles.
Subaru says cleaning products containing silicone can emit a gas that can seep into the brake lamp switch and cut off the electrical contact. That can stop the brake lights from working but brakes will still function.
Right now, the automaker has 33 reports of the problem.
