Published on 14. 08. 2020

Problem description:

An electrical connection that is part of the occupant detection system may become loose or unstable.

As a result, the system will not be able to detect if the seat is occupied, and therefore may deactivate the airbag.

The Subaru Forester models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2015 – 2018.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Subaru dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
