Problem Summary: SUBARU IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2014 FORESTER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JANUARY 2013 THROUGH MARCH 2013. THE BACKING FOR THE CARPETED FLOOR MATS WAS NOT MANUFACTURED TO SPECIFICATION. AS A RESULT, THE FLOOR MATS MAY CURL WHEN EXPOSED TO HEAT.
Consequence: CURLING OF THE DRIVER SIDE FLOOR MAT COULD DISTRACT THE DRIVER AND/OR INTERFERE WITH PROPER OPERATION OF ONE OR A COMBINATION OF, THE VEHICLE'S CLUTCH, BRAKE, AND ACCELERATOR PEDALS. BRAKE OR ACCELERATOR PEDAL INTERFERENCE MAY RESULT IN VERY HIGH VEHICLE SPEEDS AND MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO STOP THE VEHICLE, WHICH COULD CAUSE A CRASH.
What Owners Should Do: SUBARU WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE EACH OF THE VEHICLE'S FOUR (4) CARPETED FLOOR MATS WITH NEW ONES. THESE SERVICES WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. SUBARU ISSUED AN INTERIM NOTIFICATION DURING APRIL 2013. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUBARU AT 1-800-782-2783. SUBARU'S RECALL CAMPAIGN NUMBER IS WQH-44.
