Subaru Hit With Another Recall, New Crosstrek Rear Window Can Shatter Into Large Pieces
Subaru has been hit with another recall. This latest one is from Subaru of America who is recalling certain 2019 Crosstrek vehicles to replace the left-side rear door window glass. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report says vehicles may fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 205, “Glazing Materials.” The driver’s side rear window glass can shatter causing risk of injury.
The NHTSA in their reports says the left-side rear door window glass in the affected 2019 Subaru Crosstrek may not have been properly tempered during the glass manufacturing process. Glass that is not properly tempered, if broken, can shatter into large fragments that can increase the risk of injury. The left-side rear door window glass in these vehicles needs to be replaced and Subaru of America will do this at no charge to the customer.
A total of 256 U.S. vehicles will be affected by this recall and were manufactured between July 11, 2018-July 16,2018. NHTSA says not all vehicles in the production range listed are affected by this recall. Subaru will issue separate recalls to customers who own 2019 Crosstrek vehicles in other global markets like Australia, Canada, and Europe.
