Subaru is recalling nearly 60,000 model-year 2015-2021 WRX sedans due to an issue with the rear lights and rearview camera. The backup light switch may corrode and become inoperative. As a result, the backup lights may not illuminate and the rearview camera image may not display when the vehicle is in reverse, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on September 19, 2022. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 844-373-6614 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the backup light switch, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
