Subaru recalled Ascents from 2019 to 2022 due to an issue with a part called the positive temperature coefficient, or PTC, heater. Essentially, the wires connecting the PTC in the very hot engine bay could have been attached incorrectly when the SUV was built. It can melt the wires and cause a fire.
