  • Ascents from 2019 through 2022 are part of the recall

Subaru is recalling 271,694 Ascent SUVs for a potential fire risk involving electrical connections with the heater. The recall covers models from 2019 through 2022.

Subaru Recalls Over Quarter-Million Ascent SUVs For Fire RiskThe specific problem is with a ground bolt that connects the ground terminal for the SUV’s Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater. This is essentially an electric-style heater used to deliver heat to the cabin before the engine warms up.

Subaru says the bolt in question may have been improperly installed during assembly.

This could create some electrical troubles, possibly melting the ground terminal and nearby components when the heater is in use. If things get hot enough to melt, there’s naturally a risk for fire, hence the recall.
