Subaru is recalling roughly 300 model-year 2019 Subaru Ascent SUVs due to a structural problem that could present a risk of injury if there were a collision. The best part is, if they can’t fix it, they’ll replace it with a new vehicle.
The problem is the vehicle’s spot welds may be missing on or around the B-pillar, compromising vehicle strength, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. This B-pillar supports the vehicle’s roof and is located behind the driver and front passenger seats.
In some cases, a crucial spot weld may be missing or unfixable and if that is the case, Subaru could replace the owner’s vehicle with a brand new one. software programming error means some vehicles didn’t get enough spot welds.
The problem was identified in vehicles built between July 16th to 25th. An inspector at the automaker’s Indiana plant noticed the missing welds earlier this year.
The Subaru Ascent, which features three rows of seating, ranges in price from $32,000 to $45,000.
Owners of these vehicles should bring their vehicle to the dealership to check for missing spot welds and, if any are missing, replace the vehicle for free.
Subaru begun notifying owners about the problem on July 31. For more information, contact the automaker at 844-373-6614.
