The recall is not concerning the car itself, but the owners manual. An inaccurate description pertaining to the operation of the front passenger airbag could cause the occupants to misunderstand the airbag system. The airbags themselves will operate normally in a collision situation. The recall also applies to the Subaru BRZ’s owners manual.
If your owners manual was printed with a date earlier than May 2012 and has an MSA number with suffix “A”, it needs to be replaced. The local Scion or Subaru dealer can replace the manual for you. NHTSA says that roughly 1,156 units are affected.
