2009 Subaru Forester Front Three Quarter
Owners of the current-generation 2009-2012 Subaru Forester may not be held in place by their seatbelts in a crash; the parking lights in the 2012 Buick Regal fail to illuminate, and drivers of the 2003-2004 Infiniti M45 may think they have more gas than they really do. 2009-2012 Subaru Forester The Problem: Subaru is recalling certain Foresters for rear center seatbelts that may not lock in a crash if a child seat is installed. If the belt does not restrain the seat, there is a higher risk for injury to a child sitting in the backseat in a car seat. The Fix: Owners will begin being notified no later than April 13, and dealers will install a new rear center seatbelt assembly for rear seatbelts at no charge. Subaru can be contacted at 1-800-782-2783 regarding recall number WQA-37. Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: A total of more than 275,000 2009-2012 Subaru Foresters are being recalled. Subaru has broken down the potentially affected models by year: 88,759 2009 Foresters built from November 26, 2007 to March 26, 2009; 111,830 2010 Foresters built from January 28, 2009 to August 6, 2010; 74,802 2011 Foresters built from June 10, 2010 to August 31, 2011; and a to-be-determined number of 2012 Foresters built from May 25, 2011 to March 13, 2012. 2003-2004 Infiniti M45 The Problem: Due to a kink in the circuit board, the fuel gauge reading may mislead drivers by showing the vehicle has more fuel than it actually does, leading the vehicle to run out of gas without warning. The Fix: Owners will be notified beginning mid-April, and dealers will then fix the circuit board for free. Nissan can also be contacted at 1-800-647-7261 Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: There are 8120 Infiniti M45s built between March 7, 2002 and June 3, 2004 affected by this recall. 2012 Buick Regal The Problem: A software error may cause the parking lights to not light up when the driver turns on the headlights, resulting in reduced visibility from the rear. The Fix: Owners will start receiving notifications this week, and dealers will reprogram the body control module for free. GM can also be contacted for further questions at 1-800-521-7300. Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: There are 3633 Buick Regals manufactured between February 22, 2011 and February 22, 2012 that are affected by this recall.

Summary
SUBARU IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2012 FORESTER VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 26, 2007, THROUGH MARCH 13, 2012. THE AUTOMATIC LOCKING RETRACTOR in the SEAT BELT ASSEMBLIES LOCATED IN THE REAR CENTER SEATING OF THE AFFECTED VEHICLES DO NOT MEET LOCKABILITY REQUIREMENTS AND FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 208, ¿OCCUPANT CRASH PROTECTION.¿ SPECIFICALLY, THE ASSEMBLIES MAY NOT PERMIT PROPER INSTALLATION AND SECURE ATTACHMENT OF A CHILD RESTRAINT IN THAT SEATING POSITION.
Consequences
AN INSECURE INSTALLATION OF A CHILD RESTRAINT CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO A CHILD DURING A CRASH.
Remedy
SUBARU WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE REAR CENTER SEAT BELT ASSEMBLY WITH A NEWLY MODIFIED AUTOMATIC LOCKING RETRACTOR, FREE OF CHARGE. AN INTERIM LETTER WAS MAILED ON MARCH 26, 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUBARU AT 1-800-782-2783.

Summary
Subaru is recalling certain model year 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback vehicles, certain model year 2006 through 2012 Tribeca vehicles sold before January 2012, and certain model year 2009 through 2012 Forester vehicles sold before January 2012. Up to 78,650 of these vehicles may have been equipped with accessory puddle lights that, when illuminated, brighten the area under the doors of the vehicle. A short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s).
Consequences
Over time, migration of the moisture into the circuit board and/or into the connector cavity, may result in a short circuit of the puddle light system. This may generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire.
Remedy
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional fused-harness, free of charge. The recall began February 19, 2013. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.

Summary
Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2005-2009 Outback and Legacy, 2008-2011 Impreza and 2008-2014 Impreza WRX/STI, and 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, currently, or formerly, registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. Salt water could splash on the brake lines through a gap in the fuel tank protector, resulting in excessive corrosion of the brake lines. Note that affected vehicles not currently, or formerly registered, in the salt belt states identified above are eligible for repair, at no cost to the customer, upon request.
Consequences
Brake line corrosion may result in brake fluid leakage. Fluid leakage may result in longer distances being required to slow or stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will test the brake system by depressing the brake pedal and inspecting for brake fluid leaks. If no brake fluid seepage is observed, the affected areas will be rustproofed with anti-corrosion wax. If brake fluid seepage is observed, the brake lines will be replaced followed by rustproofing with anti-corrosion wax. These services will be performed free of charge. The recall began July 2014 and second notifications will run through November 2014. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's recall campaign number is WQK-47. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-110 which applied to certain 2005-2009 Legacy/Outback vehicles. Vehicles that were remedied under the previous campaign still need additional areas rust-proofed.
