Recall roundup: Subaru Legacy and Outback image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced a recall for certain Outback and Legacy models, because of a problem with corrosion.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, certain units of the Subaru Outback and Subaru Legacy, from the 2005-2009 model years, will be affected by this recall, and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealerships, because of a problem with corrosion. The NHTSA says that because of a gap in the fuel tank protector, excessive corrosion of the brake lines may result in certain 2005-2009 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Outback models.

If the brake like will be corroded, brake fluid might leak, and this will significantly affect the braking distance required to slow or to stop the vehicle, leading to a possible crash and / or injury. Owners of the above mentioned model will be notified by Subaru and the company’s dealerships will inspect the vehicles and do the necessary repairs free of charge. The affected cars have been produced between December 2003 through April 2009 and they have been registered in several states across the U.S.
