The folks at Subaru have issued a recall for 275,000 Forester models made from 2009 to 2012. The recall has been issued after a findings report from the NHTSA found the rear seat belt system to be a problem.
The issue at hand is the automatic locking retractor in the seatbelt assemblies of the rear center seat. This could cause a child safety seat to not be properly restrained or anchored and could result in a serious injury or fatality in the event of a crash. Subaru has already begun contacting owners of affected vehicles to schedule a free repair at their newest Subaru dealer. If you have any questions or want to double check if your vehicle is affected you can contact Subaru directly at 1-800-782-2783.
