Please note the latest statement on Takata airbags that is posted on Subaru. com which includes clarification on driver-side front airbags.  That statement is below:


A Message to Our Customers About Air Bag Recalls


Subaru is committed to addressing the concerns of our customers as we stand behind the safety and quality of our products. We are currently conducting safety recalls related to right front passenger air bags produced by Takata Corporation for some of the following vehicles:


2003, 2004, and 2005 model year Legacy

2003, 2004, and 2005 model year Outback

2003, 2004, and 2005 model year Baja

2004 and 2005 model year Impreza (including WRX and STI)

Please note that no Subaru has ever been fitted with Takata-produced driver-side front airbags, and therefore any recall only applies to passenger-side airbags.


If you believe you may own one of these vehicles, we encourage you to check by using this VIN lookup function.  If your vehicle is affected, we urge you to take immediate action by scheduling an appointment with your Subaru retailer (dealer) to have the recall performed. Please avoid seating occupants in the right front passenger seat until you have the scheduled work performed on your vehicle. If you have any questions, please contact your Subaru retailer, or our National Customer Contact Center at 1-800-SUBARU3 (1-800-782-2783).
