Subaru South Africa recalls another 2 098 vehicles over faulty Takata airbags


Following a spate of recalls involving exploding Takata airbags from as far back as 2016, Subaru South Africa has initiated another call-back of 2 098 vehicles over fears of the passenger front airbag discharging without warning.

Coming just over two weeks after Toyota announced a wide-scale recall of over 700 000 vehicles over the defective inflators, Subaru models affected include the Impreza and WRX made between 2004-2011, Forester (2009-2012), Legacy / Outback (2005-2014) and the Tribeca (2005-2011).

"Subaru SA is urging customers to start the process of getting their vehicles seen to, even though there have been no reports or incidents in South Africa," Subaru South Africa Technical Manager, Deon Van Heerden, said in a statement.

Owners suspecting their vehicles to be affected can visit the Subaru South Africa at, and insert the VIN number into the VIN checker, or email
