Vehicle Recalls

At Subaru, we put safety first – both in the way we our cars as well how safe each model is for every person that gets behind the wheel of a Subaru model. Our mission is to create Confidence in Motion for every Subaru driver, and this means making some serious safety decisions when it comes to Subaru recall drives too.

  • How do I know if my vehicle is affected?
    If you are unsure whether your vehicle is eligible for a Subaru recall, insert your 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into the electronic form below. The VIN can be found on the vehicle itself – on the windscreen, licence disc or vehicle registration documents. Add in your VIN number and click next.


It is in your best interest to promptly act on vehicle recalls.
Should there be a recall initiated against your vehicle, please contact your nearest Subaru Dealer for further information.
