Takata Airbag Inflator Recall

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, you’ve 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 inflator 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.
