Recall roundup: Chinese Subaru vehicles image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced a recall for the China imported Legacy and Outback models because of problems with the brake master cylinders.

According to the car manufacturer, stomach 7.133 units of the Legacy and Outback models imported into China will be affected by this recall. Chinese owners of the Legacy and Outback vehicles will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the brake master cylinders fixed. The two models have design flaws in the brake master cylinders and if the issue is not fixed it can lead to traffic accidents because of the added stopping distance. China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine didn’t say anything about possible reports received from the owners of the Legacy and Outback models.

The Subaru Legacy and Subaru Outback affected by this recall have been produced from September 21 to November 15 and from November 29 to December 19, 2011. Owners of the two models have been warned by the government agency to delay using them until this problem is fixed. This is part of a larger recall which affected the Subaru models at the end of 2011, when the Legacy, Outback and Impreza had to be driven back to the dealers to fix a faulty brake pedal.
