Over 366,000 Subaru Foresters recalled over airbag issues

More than 366,000 Subaru Foresters are being recalled because of airbag issues.

Electrical connections under the SUVs’ front seat cushions may come loose and deactivate the front airbags, even if the seats are occupied, according to ConsumerReports .

Foresters involved in the recall include the 2015 through 2018 models that have heated seats. You can check to see if your vehicle is included here.

ConsumerReports says affected Subaru owners will be notified of the recall starting Nov. 29 and they’ll receive a second notice when the new parts needed are available.

“Subaru’s dealers will inspect the SUV and, if necessary, replace the ODS sensor and electrical harness free of charge,” writes the website.
