The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said Tuesday that Subaru issued a voluntary recall of over 271,000 Ascent SUVs.
Subaru launched the recall in response to certain Ascent SUVs potentially having an "improperly fastened" ground bolt for their positive temperature coefficient (PTC) heaters, according to the safety recall report.
When heaters with "improperly fastened" bolts are operating, their ground terminals could experience excessive heat, potentially leading to melting and an "increased risk of a fire," the report said.

The more than 271,000 SUVs covered in the recall are select 2019 to 2022 Ascent models, the NHTSA said.
