Recall Alert: 2013 Scion FR-S and 2013 Subaru BRZ


The affected FR-S cars were manufactured from March 22 through May 14, 2012, and 1,156 are involved in the recall. Subaru is recalling 1,886 BRZs manufactured from Nov. 25, 2011 to May 25, 2012. You can check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

In both coupes, the owner’s manuals fail to comply with federal motor vehicle standards because they contain inaccurate and unclear descriptions of the car’s occupant classification and airbag systems. This could lead to an increased risk of injury in a crash involving airbag deployment.

Both automakers will notify owners later this month and mail corrected owner’s manuals free of charge. Owners can call Scion at 866-707-2466 or Subaru at 800-782-2783 for more information. NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline is also available at 888-327-4236.
