Subaru recalls more than 10,000 2014 Foresters due to floor mats
Subaru announced that it is recalling more than 10,000 of its 2014 Forester models to correct an issue with the floor mats.
The driver’s carpeted floor mat can potentially curl when exposed to heat, causing it to interfere with the gas, brake or clutch pedal, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The issue was noticed by Subaru without any reported incidents or injuries to consumers, said company spokesman Michael McHale. “Just us being careful,” McHale said of the recall.
A total of 10,137 Forester crossover SUVs are affected. The models were manufactured between January 2013 and March 2013. Owners will be notified beginning at the end of April, and will need to take their vehicles to their Subaru dealer, where four new floor mats will be installed free of charge.
