Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,900 model-year 2019 Subaru Crosstrek SUVs equipped with rear seat belt assemblies with a dual-mode locking mechanism
The Problem: The seat belt webbing sensor locking mechanism may not lock as intended, which may not properly restrain the occupant in a crash involving multiple impacts, increasing the risk of an injury.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the rear seat belt assemblies for free.
What Owners Should Do: Subaru will begin notifying owners April 24. Owners can call the automaker at 844-373-6614, 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.
