Subaru has issued a stop-sale and recall on 2015 models equipped with the EyeSight active safety system. This action includes the Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek, as well as the 2016 WRX. Owners of these models will be sent a notice by the end of June, but dealers are already equipped to remedy the problem. According to the report submitted to National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects about 72,000 vehicles. The recall addresses a brake light switch that can interfere with the software that triggers the automatic braking, potentially causing the automatic braking to not function as intended. There are no reported injuries due to this risk.


Please read this,. Yes, the post above is for 2015 , but, there's more.


Number_5- the system should be activated by DEFAULT. If it were my car, I would have had the vehicle in the dealership asking them to fix this. See this excerpt from a Consumers Reports blog,. " Subaru EyeSight owners, you’ve chosen wisely. The system brings peace of mind and works as intended, as we have experienced. Owners are encouraged to head to the dealer at their earliest convenience and have this recall work performed. The recall campaign number is WQS-54. The software update process should take about an hour.". Remember, the recall is WQS-54. Take your car in Monday.


If you appreciate my efforts to find this information for you, please mark my previous answer as "best answer".. Thanks.
