Subaru recalls more than 366,000 Foresters over air bag issue

Subaru is recalling 366,282 Foresters in an Oct. 3 filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

CNet reported that the recall comes after an investigation into faulty air bag sensors for front passenger seats fitted on certain Foresters. Affected model years are 2015 through 2018.

"Over time, due to a decrease in contact pressure between terminals in the occupant detection system (ODS) sensor mat harness, a temporarily unstable electrical connection may be possible," the safety recall report said. "If the connection is temporarily unstable, the ODS may not properly determine the status of a front right seat occupant."

No injuries or accidents have been reported.

Subaru dealers will remedy the issue by inspecting affected vehicles and replacing the ODS sensor mat harness with a new part for free. Owners will begin to be notified Nov. 29, once parts are available for the remedy, according to the report.
