In recent months, a number of complaints from those who own or lease a 2019 or 2020 Subaru Crosstrek have emerged. While these complaints cover a variety of defects, a large portion of them pertain to steering issues. Reports of wheels not properly responding to the steering wheel and of steering system that violently move the vehicle across an entire lane unexpectedly have come to light, with many Subaru customers expressing concern about the overall safety of these vehicles.
According to one owner of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, the steering becomes loose and unresponsive when the lane departure system is activated. The wheels fail to respond to the steering wheel for several seconds, which makes the driver feel unsafe. Other drivers report that the steering system can suddenly push the vehicle across the lane, especially when traveling at speeds over 60 miles per hour or around curves. Drivers rapidly attempt to correct the steering, but the experience is often tense and frightening. Many of the affected customers indicate that these steering problems are persistent, with no clear diagnosis or fix in sight.
