Dear Owners,

Safety has been, and always will be, the driving force within every Subaru – from engineering to real-world results. It is one of the reasons you and your family have put trust in our brand, and we want to assure you that you have made the right choice. To stay true to our values, we are informing our owners of the Takata supplied airbag inflator recall – the largest recall in automotive history, currently affecting vehicles across the industry – and how your Subaru may be impacted.

This recall only relates to the passenger-side front airbag in certain Subaru vehicles, and does not affect our driver-side front airbags, which were not equipped with a Takata inflator. Therefore, if your vehicle requires a recall service, we recommend that occupants not use the front-passenger seat until the repair is performed.

To see if your vehicle has an open recall, use the VIN Search Tool. We encourage you to re-check every three months for updates. You can learn more about this recall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by clicking the link below.

NHTSA – Takata airbag recall

Our Resolve

Subaru is committed to keeping our extended family of owners safe and informed. We will continue correcting this airbag issue until all affected Subaru vehicles are repaired. This includes:

  • Notifying owners with open recalls to schedule a repair service at their local retailer, at no cost
  • Working with all available airbag manufacturers to increase the supply of proper replacements for timely repairs

This recall will affect millions of vehicles worldwide from various manufacturers, including Subaru. This means that the availability of replacement airbags, and service space at our stores, may be affected. Everyone’s safety is equally important to us, and we are taking every measure to meet this challenge.

We will continue updating the status of this recall while encouraging our owners to take action. If you have any questions, please contact your Subaru retailer or our National Customer Contact Center by phone at 1-800-SUBARU3 (1-800-782-2783) or via email from the Contact Us section of the "Customer Support" page. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work toward a solution to protect our most important vehicle component – you.

Sincerely,

Subaru of America, Inc.

Subaru vehicles affected by the Takata airbag recall

Due to the nature of these defective airbags (based on vehicle age and regional environmental factors), we will be repairing affected vehicles in phases.

Vehicles recalled prior to May 2016: These recalls on Takata airbags affect older model years, prioritized in areas of high heat and humidity.

Certain vehicles among the models and model years listed below are affected.

  • 2004-2005 model year Impreza (including WRX and STI)
  • 2003-2008 model year Legacy

Not all vehicles within the models and model years listed above are involved.

Please use the VIN Search Tool to check if your vehicle is affected.

Vehicle Recall Expansion: This recall expansion affects model years noted in the below map. These vehicles are prioritized in areas of high heat and humidity, due to a NHTSA announcement that Takata airbags will experience degradation based on time, temperature and humidity.

NHTSA’s zone segmentation dictates the order in which model years are recalled:

ZONE A: Includes states and U.S. territories with high temperature cycling and humidity. Time in service until significant degradation may occur is projected at between 6-9 years.

ZONE B: Includes states with moderate temperature cycling and humidity. Time in service until significant degradation may occur is projected at between 10-15 years.

ZONE C: Includes states with lower temperature cycling and humidity. Time in service until significant degradation may occur is projected at between 15-20 years.

Please view the chart below, and then use the VIN Search Tool to see if your vehicle is recalled.
