Subaru is recalling 10,137 Foresters to fix floor mats that can curl and block the driver’s pedals, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Floor mats on certain 2014 Forester crossovers can curl “when exposed to heat,” Subaru said, which could mean anything from engine and transmission heat radiated through the driver’s footwell to ducted hot air from the climate-control system. On April 1, the automaker found 21 Forester models at a Washington state port with curled floor mats and later instructed dealers to remove floor mats after finding that the resin used on the mat’s backing was defective. Subaru dealers will begin replacing all four carpeted floor mats by the end of April. Owners can call Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 for more information.
