Subaru has announced that they are recalling certain models of the 2014 Forester vehicles manufactured from January 2013 through March 2013. They stated that the backing for the carpeted floor mats was not manufactured to specification. As a result, the floor mats may curl when exposed to heat.
Curling of the driver side floor mat could distract the driver and/or interfere with proper operation of one or a combination of, the vehicle’s clutch, brake, and accelerator pedals. Brake or accelerator pedal interference may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash.
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace each of the vehicles 4 carpeted floor mats with new ones. These services will be preformed free of charge. Owners may contact Subaru 1-800-782-2783.
