The North American Division of Subaru has just announced a new recall involving the Legacy and Outback models because of the adhesive that was improperly applied to the moonroof.
Subaru says that the moonroof glass can loosen and detach from the roof during driving and decided to announce the recall after receiving several complaints from customers in the United States.
“The amount and position of the adhesive between the glass and retainer was inadequately applied. The moonroof glass can loosen and detach from the vehicle during driving, resulting in a potential road hazard for other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash”, as it is written in an official statement of the NHTSA.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 69.590 units of the Legacy and Outback will be affected by the recall and their owners will have to make a trip back to the dealership starting from October.
This is not the only recall that affected the Legacy and Outback and just a week ago Subaru announced that the 2002-2007 Impreza and 2003-2008 Forester would have to make a trip back to the dealerships for some rusty brackets, while the 2010-2011 Legacy and Outback models were scheduled to replace the windshield wiper bottom cover that could catch fire or stop working.
Owners of the mentioned Subaru Legacy and Outback can contact the North American Division of the automaker at 1-800-782-2783.
