Subaru Recalling 2014-MY Foresters

April 30, 2013

Subaru of America Inc. is recalling 10,137 2014 model-year Forester vehicles because the floor mats might curl and interfere with the vehicle’s clutch, brake and accelerator pedals, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers Forester vehicles manufactured from January through March of this year. The backing for the carpeted floor mats was not manufactured to specification. As a result, the floor mats may curl when exposed to heat. This condition poses the risk of unintended acceleration or braking.

Subaru dealers will replace each of the vehicle's four carpeted floor mats with new ones. These services will be performed free of charge. Subaru will issue an interim notification shortly. Owners can reach Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
