Subaru Malaysia Announces Recall On Forester, XV, And More Over Brake Light Switch

TC Subaru and its parent company, Motor Image, has announced a recall involving four Subaru models to replace faulty brake light switches.

The specific models have been identified under the recall campaign as are stated below:

  • Forester 2014-2016 Model Year (MY)
  • Subaru XV 2012-2017MY
  • WRX (4-Door) 2011-2014MY
  • Impreza 2008-2016MY

Subaru says that silicone gas from certain consumer products may seep through the housing of the brake light switch. This particular component is believed to be located at the brake pedal assembly.

As a result, functions related to the brake light switch (brake light, Vehicle Dynamics Control, transmission and engine-start interlocks, and EyeSight) will stop operating.

If the defect occurs, the brake lights will not light up and may cause other road users to be unaware of the driver’s intention to slow down or stop the vehicle, thereby increasing the risk of collisions.

Motor Image said it will notify its customers in Malaysia and the region about the recall and replace the brake light switch and related parts, free of charge.

“Motor Image is committed to the highest safety standards and quality driving experience for all our customers. Motor Image is in constant contact with Subaru Corporation for any further updates and will notify affected customers accordingly,” said the company in a media statement.
