These vehicles could be equipped with faulty puddle lamp wiring, which if exposed to electrolytic moisture (like road salt), could short circuit. This could lead to a fire. According to Subaru, the recall is a result of customers’ complaints regarding smoke and/or fire coming out from the puddle lights.

Subaru will notify owners starting in February, and dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free. Owners can call Subaru at 800-782-2783 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
