If you bought a new Subaru this year, there could be some bad news. It is recalling just over 10,000, 2014 Forester wagons because the floor mats can get in the way of the clutch, brake or gas pedals.
Chris Heck with the Service Department of Ultimate Buick GMC Subaru in Fredericksburg says you will be notified by mail.
The fixes for a recalled issue are almost always covered under your manufacturer's warranty. If it takes a few days to fix the problem, the manufacturer will often provide a loaner or rental car.
Heck says never ignore a recall notice. They are almost always issued for a safety concern and it has to affect more than 13% of people that own a model with that issue. Not fixing the problem could lead to you or your family getting injured, down the road.
