2002 Subaru Forester POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION NHTSA Campaign #02V282000
Summary: Certain sport utility and passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions were produced with an improperly manufactured transmission parking rod. When the transmission selector lever is placed in the "P" (park) position, the transmission park mechanism, that is intended to hold your vehicle, may not engage.
Consequence: The vehicle could then move/roll without prior warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the automatic transmission parking rod assembly. Owner notification January 8, 2003. An interim owner notification will be sent during November 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
