Subaru of America is recalling 7,741 model year 2020 Legacys and Outbacks with "high" grade and "mid" grade multimedia navigation.
The August 2020 over-the-air software update may have timed out without completing the installation, corrupting the data, and causing the rearview display to shutoff intermittently.
The intermittent loss of the rearview image reduces the driver's visibility and increases the risk of crash.
What to do
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the software and -- if necessary -- replace the Cockpit Control Module free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 22, 2021.
Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WRH-20.
