Subaru Issues “Cease Driving” Recommendation in SUV Recall

Cydney Patterson5 months ago

Subaru has issued a “cease driving” recommendation to owners of 2016 and 2017 Legacy and Outlook vehicles following the discovery of a defect that could result in sudden loss of steering.

Details of the Subaru Steering Defect

Have you ever wondered is my car safe to drive? Well if you are the driver of a 2016 or 2017 Subaru Legacy or Outback you might really want to dwell on this question for a moment.

Subaru previously issued a recall of over 48,000 sedans and crossovers due to the dangerous steering defect. According to an Autoweek article, Subaru says that turning your steering wheel may have no effect on the wheels.

This in itself is highly dangerous and could lead to serious crashes. Subaru strongly urges that the car dealerships that are selling the 2016 and 2017 Subaru Legacy and Outback keep customers from buying the cars until the problem is corrected.

Subaru and Regulators Work to Identify Affected Vehicles

No injuries have been reported to Subaru, but they highly encourage that the car is not driven until the problem is inspected and corrected.

Currently, dealers inspecting the vehicle numbers on the steering wheels and are trying to determine which steering wheels need to be replaced, and you should do the same. If your steering wheel does need to be replaced, it is being done free of charge and any local car dealership can perform the inspection.
