Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,400 model-year 2019 Subaru Crosstrek and Forester SUVs
The Problem: A connector inside the electronic power steering unit may short-circuit, resulting in a loss of electric power steering assistance and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the steering gearbox and replace it, as necessary, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Subaru began recalling vehicles Feb. 7, though it noted that none of the affected vehicles have been sold yet. Owners can call the automaker at 800-782-2783, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
