The company says the rearview camera display may not work properly due to a software problem.


If it's not working properly, the driver's view of what is behind the car can be reduced.

That can potentially increase the risk of a crash or backing over someone behind the vehicle.

Subaru of America will notify owners of the 2017 Impreza sedan and 5-door. Dealers will then update the infotainment software free of charge to drivers.

Subaru owners may contact the company's customer service department at 1-800-782-2783.
