Subaru is recalling approximately 188,400 model-year 2017-2019 Impreza vehicles due to faulty headlight reflectors. The left and right side reflex reflector and left side low-beam reflector may not adequately reflect light because of a damaged mold that was used during the casting process. Reflectors that do not provide adequate illumination reduce the driver’s visibility and increase the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on October 11, 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 fix the problem, dealers will replace the front headlamp assemblies.
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.
