Subaru issues recall of 271,000 SUVs because of ‘increased risk’ of fire

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Tuesday that Subaru issued a voluntary recall of over 271,000 Ascent sport utility vehicles.

Subaru launched the recall in response to certain Ascent SUVs potentially having an “improperly fastened” ground bolt for their positive temperature coefficient (PTC) heaters, according to the safety recall report.

When heaters with “improperly fastened” bolts are operating, their ground terminals could experience excessive heat, potentially leading to melting and an “increased risk of a fire,” the report said.
