Subaru has recalled more than 95,000 vehicles due to a potential defective weld that may allow water to enter the inhibitor switch, causing it to fail and preventing the reverse lights and backup camera to fail.
The recall covers model year 2021 Crosstreks, model year 2022 Foresters, and model year 2021-2023 Legacys, and Outbacks, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Car owners with these vehicles can have the inhibitor switch replaced by a Subaru dealer free of charge.
Subaru is mailing owner notification letters on Jan. 8, 2024, and consumers can also call the company’s customer service at (800) 782-2783. The number for the recall is WRQ-23.
