Subaru of America is recalling 1,305 model year 2020 Ascents.
Due to an incorrect tapered hole in the housing, the front tie rod ends may not fit properly. An improper fit can result in the tie rods and housings being deformed during assembly and service replacement if excessive torque is applied.
As a result, the tie rods may separate from the housing, causing a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will replace the left and right front tie rod ends and housings free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on February 7, 2022.
Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WRL-21.
