Subaru has announced that it halts sales of 2015 models that have the EyeSight active safety system and recalls them. To the models implied, the Impreza, Forester, Legacy, XV Crosstrek, Outback, and the 2016 WRX refer. Dealers already have necessary parts to fix the autos.
The EyeSight active safety system consists of two cameras at the top of the front windscreen. The cameras monitor a road and give a driver visual or audio signals if a hazardous situation is about to happen (for example, if there’s a pedestrian on the auto’s way or a vehicle forward stops suddenly). In the case a person at the wheel doesn’t react to the warnings, the system applies automatic braking (only when a vehicle’s moving at 30 mph and slower) to avoid an accident or at least to mitigate its consequences. The EyeSight active safety system encompasses pre-collision breaking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane change assist, blind spot warning, and cross-traffic alert.
As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports, there can be issues with automatic braking in about 72,000 of Subaru vehicles. No injuries or fatalities have been reported so far.
