Subaru recalling wagons over mats

DETROIT — Subaru is recalling just over 10,000 of its 2014 Forester wagons because the floor mats can interfere with the clutch, brake, or gas pedals.

The problem was discovered in cars arriving at a port in Vancouver, Wash.

A company spokesman said Monday that Subaru knows of no crashes or injuries caused by the defective mats.

Subaru traced the problem to improperly manufactured backing on the mats.

Dealers will replace all four mats free of charge.
