Subaru EyeSight Fails to Automatically Detect Objects in the Road

Subaru’s EyeSight has been caught napping on the job.

EyeSight is Subaru’s advanced collision avoidance system that is always looking ahead and making sure the path is clear. Well, except when it’s not. A defective switch that activates the brake lights can fail and that, in turn, tells the pre-collision system to “take five.”

The problem was discovered on April 15, 2015 when Subaru was developing other models. Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of EyeSight problems.

The automaker says the following vehicles with the EyeSight feature are being recalled.

Subaru hasn’t announced when the recall will begin.
