Forester Rear Coil Spring Recall

Subaru Forester Rear Coil Spring Recall - WUT-05

Which Subaru Forester Models are Being Recalled for the Rear Coil Spring?

Forester models from 2014-2016 and manufactured between March 25th, 2013 and April 28th, 2016 are currently in recall for their rear coil springs under a Customer Satisfaction Service Program. These vehicles should have VINs that range between EG428969 and GH569086.

What is the Problem with the Forester's Rear Coil Spring Recall?

With the Forester models listed above, the rear coil springs have begun to corrode. Owners may have noticed flakes or small pieces of metal underneath their vehicles. The vehicle's springs have a protective coating that can wear due to impacts from rocks or other debris from the road. When this coating is compromised, the coil spring will begin to pit and rust, with small fragments breaking off over time. In some extreme cases, the spring may even fracture. You may be able to detect excessive corrosion or fractures of the rear coil springs when one corner of your vehicle sits or rides lower than the others.
