The NHTSA said the weld may be insufficient and may allow water to leak into the switch, causing it to fail. If it does, the switch may not allow the reverse lights to illuminate and the review camera to display an image.

The following vehicles are included in the recall:

  • 2021 Crosstrek
  • 2022 Forester
  • 2021-2023 Legacy
  • 2021-2023 Outback

Dealers will change the inhibitor switch for free. Owners will get letters notifying them that their vehicles are part of the recall after Jan. 8, the NHTSA said.

If you want to contact Subaru, you can do so by calling 800-782-2783. The internal recall number is WRQ-23.
