Several news agencies have revealed in recent articles that Subaru has issued a recall statement related to over 1,800 units of 2013 BRZ Vehicles. The recalled 2013 BRZ vehicles were manufactured between November 25th, 2011 and May 25th, 2012.
According to the official recall statement issued by the company and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicles listed under this recall were equipped with owner’s manuals that are inconsistent with federal motor vehicle safety standards. The federal agency has indicated that the information regarding the air bag classification system is inaccurate and so is the information found in the owner’s manual regarding the proper operation of the front passenger occupant seats, which could lead to injuries since drivers and passengers are misinformed.
To prevent injuries and certain crash conditions that could pose threats to passengers, the company has decided to issue this recall announcement at once urging all recalled vehicle owners to contact the manufacturer to learn more about the corrected owner’s manual they are entitled to receive in the near future.
At this moment, Subaru is also notifying owners and should have a completely corrected owner’s manual shipped to every affected vehicle owner in the country.
Hopefully the recall campaign related to these Subaru vehicles is being carried out successfully so accidents can be avoided. I encourage you to contact the manufacturer at once if you have any questions related to this recall announcement.
