New Knee Guards Won’t Help You in a Crash

Subaru is issuing a recall for some loose knee guards that are there to provide additional protection for drivers wearing their seat belts in a crash.

The 2017 Subaru Legacy and Outback vehicles are equipped with knee guard brackets that may not be properly attached to the steering beam assemblies. The knee guard is meant to help provide additional protection to a driver in a crash, especially if they aren’t wearing a seat belt.

Or you could just wear your darn seat belt. #realtalk
