Subaru recalls 1.3 million vehicles over brake light problem

Subaru is recalling 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. because the brake lights may not illuminate properly. The recall covers certain 2014 to 2016 Forester, 2008 through 2016 Impreza and 2013 through 2017 Crosstrek vehicles.

Subaru said cleaning products containing silicone can emit a gas that can seep into the brake lamp switch and cut off the electrical contact. That can stop the brake lights from working but brakes will still function.

The automaker said the problem doesn’t happen very often. It has only 33 reports in the U.S.

Subaru said it discovered the problem. It will reach out to affected customers and replace the switch.

The recall is being done worldwide, but information about the number of vehicles affected and the models wasn’t available Saturday.
