Hood Opens While Driving

The hood latch may fail and the hood may open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will first inspect and attempt to clean and lubricate the hood safety and lock systems. If this does not correct the concern, the latch will be replaced with a new current style part. All repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Puddle Lights May Melt or Catch Fire

The accessory lights that illuminate the area under the doors are referred to as "puddle" lights. An electrical short circuit can develop when either the puddle light or its connector are exposed to an electrolytic moisture source (such as road spray that has road salt in it) and it penetrates the circuit board of the puddle light or the pins of the puddle light connector(s). The short circuit can generate heat which may melt the plastic resulting in smoke or fire. Subaru dealers will install an additional fused-harness, to protect the puddle light system.
