Recall roundup: Subaru Outback and Legacy image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced a recall for some of the Outback and Legacy vehicles because of a problem with the steering.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 5,379 units of the Subaru Outback and Subaru Legacy vehicles will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers, in their rides, in order to get the problem with the steering solved. The NHTSA says that the problem found is related to the steering column assembly on certain vehicles, which apparently has a loss in steering ability.

The recall has been announced after two customer complaints about a loss of steering ability have been received. The recalled Subaru Outbacks and Subaru Legacys are from the 2013 model year and they have been produced between the 15th of February, 2012 and the 15th of June, 2012. The company’s dealers will replace the steering column assembly with a new one, free of charge. Owners will be announced soon and the recall is expected to begin this month. Meanwhile owners of the vehicles mentioned above can contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
