Chronology :

July 18, 2019 – Subaru was informed by NHTSA that testing indicated a noncompliance for the left front halogen headlamp assembly.

July 24, 2019 – A mold insert of the side reflex reflector was replaced as a preliminary countermeasure. In addition, the inspection frequency for the side reflex reflector and the halogen low beam reflector was increased from once-per-month to once-per-week.

July 25 – September 25, 2019 – From the result of the continued investigation, it was determined that a damaged mold used for the side reflex reflector and a worn mold for the halogen low beam reflector had caused a change in product performance. Subaru traced the potentially affected halogen headlamp assemblies to a vehicle manufacturing period of September 23, 2016 through August 7, 2019.

September 26, 2019 – Subaru decided that certain vehicles may not comply with the requirements set forth in FMVSS No. 108

October 23, 2019 – Based on information provided by the supplier, Subaru decided to file a Petition of Decision of Inconsequential Noncompliance for relief from notification and remedy requirements under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

August 5, 2022 – Subaru received notice that NHTSA had denied Subaru’s petition.

August 8, 2022 – Subaru reviewed NHTSA’s denial and decided to recall the subject vehicles.
