Subaru Ascent Transmission Recall

Subaru Ascent Transmission Recall - WUV-07 CVT Chain Slip

Which Subaru Vehicles are Affected by This Recall?

This recall impacts all 2019 Subaru Ascent models produced on the assembly line between February 22nd, 2018 and May 7th, 2019.

What Does the Subaru CVT Chain Slip Look Like and How Will It Affect My Vehicle's Performance?The Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT, in your Subaru Ascent has a hydraulic sensor that may be inaccurately measuring your vehicle's hydraulic fluid pressure. This inaccuracy may cause the CVT chain to slip, resulting in irregular noises, hesitation while driving, some vibrations, and the malfunction indicator lamp, or MIL, to illuminate on the dash display. If this chain slip occurs while driving and happens regularly, it can result in a loss of power and put drivers at risk of a potential crash and expensive damage repair.

How is the CVT Chain Slip Fixed and How Long Will That Take?

Here at Huffines Subaru Corinth, we'll reprogram the transmission control unit and check for certain diagnostic indications that the CVT chain has slipped. We can replace the hydraulic sensor harness, and if we notice evidence of low drive chain tension, we'll replace the transmission assembly. All of these services will be performed free of charge for you at Huffines Subaru Corinth, courtesy of our certified Subaru technicians - you won't be charged for any recall work! How long these repairs take will depend on how many parts fail inspections and testing. Typically, you should allow for two hours of work, but if the transmission assembly needs replacement, it might take longer.
