Vehicles Affected: Approximately 170 model-year 2019 Subaru Ascent SUVs
The Problem: The center support bolts for the driveshaft may loosen, possibly resulting in the front portion of the driveshaft disconnecting, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the driveshaft assembly, including the center support brace, for free.
