Subaru’s To Be Recalled
Over one million...yes, one million Subaru's are going to be recalled in the United States. The reason, according to WILX-TV is that in certain models the brake lights may not properly light up.
This recall will cover certain Subaru 2013 through 2017 Crosstreks, 2014 to 2016 Foresters and 2008 through 2016 Imprezas. The interesting thing here is that the company says that silicone containing cleaning products can give off a gas that can get into the brake lamp switch and cut off the necessary electrical contact that can cause the brake lights to stop working. However, even though this happens, the brakes will continue to work. This obviously creates the problem where a vehicle slows down or stops with no notice to vehicles that are traveling behind it.
Subaru says that there has been just over 30 reports of this problem in the United States so far.
