Subaru Recalling Forester SUVs as Rear Seatbelt May Not Securely Hold Child Safety Seat

According to an article recently published by the Associated Press, Subaru of America, Inc. is recalling more than 275,000 Forester SUVs from four different model years after learning that the rear seat belts may not hold a child seat securely in place.

Federal safety regulators said the recall affects Subaru Foresters from the 2009 to 2012 model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published on its website recently that the rear center belt does not meet federal safety standards. The agency reported that as a result, Forester owners might not be able to install child seats properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Subaru of America Inc. has not yet reported any injuries as a result of this issue because this seat belt malfunction was discovered during routine testing of the Forester.

Owners should expect to hear from dealers with notification as to replacing belts beginning in April. This replacement will be free of charge.

If you or someone you know has been harmed by a recalled product, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-222-7211 or 1-800-870-9584.
