Subaru Forester Seat Belt Recall

 

Here is some basic information in regards to the  Subaru Forester Seat Belt Recall, this affects the current era Forester.

Its a big one affecting a lot of cars, so it would be good to get in line.

Subaru is issuing a recall for 275,000 Foresters today, built between November 26, 2007 and March 13,2012.

NHTSA cites a fault in the automatic locking retractor in the rear center seat belt assembly as the source of the issue. This specific seat belt connector is used for restraining child seats, and because of the faulty locking mechanism, child seats can become un-secure while the vehicle is in motion, greatly increasing the injury risk for the child in the seat.

Subaru will contact all owners affected and replace the faulty seat belt component free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before April 13, 2012. Concerned customers can contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783, or the NHTSA safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
