What are the defects?

The passenger’s front airbag inflator propellant wafers may have an increased potential for moisture intrusion over time. Moisture intrusion could potentially make the inflator assembly more susceptible to rupture during airbag deployment.

What are the hazards?

The ruptured inflator may create metallic fragments during deployment that could contact an occupant, increasing the risk of injury.

What should consumers do?

Known owners will be contacted by mail as soon as parts become available to present their vehicle to their preferred Subaru retailer for the replacement of the passenger's front airbag inflator at no charge.
