2014 Forester model recalled for defective floor mats
Report Receipt Date: APR 24, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V159000 
Component(s): EQUIPMENT 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 10,137 

Manufacturer: Subaru of America, Inc
SUMMARY:
Subaru is recalling certain model year 2014 Forester vehicles manufactured from January 2013 through March 2013. The backing for the carpeted floor mats was not manufactured to specification. As a result, the floor mats may curl when exposed to heat.
CONSEQUENCE:
Curling of the driver side floor mat could distract the driver and/or interfere with proper operation of one or a combination of, the vehicle's clutch, brake, and accelerator pedals. Brake or accelerator pedal interference may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash.
