Subaru is recalling approximately 405,000 model-year 2019 Crosstrek SUVs and Forester wagons due to an issue with the bolts on the rear stabilizer bracket. The bolts could come loose over time and the bracket could interact with other components, causing damage and increasing the risk of a crash.
Subaru will begin notifying owners on June 14. Owners can call the automaker 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 examine and retorque the bolts on the rear stabilizer bracket.
