Hood Latches Recalled in Tribeca Hoods

Let’s face it — there are a lot of dangerous things that can go wrong with your car. Having your hood fly open and slam into the windshield while driving? That definitely ranks up there.

Subaru is recalling 77,000 Tribecas for that exact reason:

“Subaru blames the problem on rusted parts or solidified grease that can gradually cause the springs inside the hood safety system or hood lock system to fail to return to the proper positions.”

Blame it on whatever you want, Subaru. Just get it fixed. The automaker didn’t say when the recall will begin.
