2019 Subaru Ascent: Recall Alert

2019 Subaru Ascent: Recall Alert

12/13/2019

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 76,800 model-year 2019 Subaru Ascent SUVs

The Problem: The transmission hydraulic sensor may inaccurately measure the hydraulic fluid pressure. If the fluid pressure is measured higher than its actual value, the hydraulic pressure will be reduced, resulting in a loss of drive power and an increased risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the transmission control unit. The hydraulic sensor harness will be replaced on SUVs with certain stored diagnostic trouble codes. Additionally, the transmission assembly will be replaced on any Ascent confirmed to have experienced low drive-chain tension. All repairs will be done for free.

What Owners Should Do: Subaru will begin notifying owners Jan. 24. Owners can call the automaker at 844-373-6614, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
