Recall Alert: 2010 Subaru Tribeca

Posted: Mar. 25, 2010

A recall has been issued for defective door latches on 1,585 2010 Subaru Tribeca SUVs.

Autoblog reports, "Apparently, during production some door latch cables were installed improperly, so that when the window is rolled down the cable might catch in the door glass regulator, and that will open the door."

Left Lane News adds, "Owners of the 2010 Subaru Tribeca will want to exercise caution with loose cargo or unsecured passengers in the front of the vehicle as the door latch may open without warning."

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says in its recall summary that, "if a door were to unlatch, it could open suddenly and without warning, creating a risk that the occupant could become ejected as well as a risk that the driver may become distracted, leading to a crash. This condition may also result in the failure of a door latch to operate, in which case occupants would be unable to open the door to exit the vehicle."

Tribeca owners will be contacted by Subaru, who will fix the latches free of charge. In the meantime, be sure that everyone in the car buckles up, and that you keep all cargo in the Tribeca's cargo area. The NHTSA recall campaign ID number is 10V108000. If you have questions, contact your local Subaru dealer.
