Subaru Impreza WRX Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on January 9, 2018

This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
