Subaru Recall 660,000 Vehicles – Brake Concerns

Destiny Baker2 years ago

Subaru has issued a recall for 660,000 vehicles due to concerns of brake line corrosion and a possible reduction in brake effectiveness, increasing the risk of collision.

About the Subaru Recall

According to USA Today, Subaru has determined that salt water can reach the brake lines through a gap in the fuel tank protector, resulting in brake line corrosion and leaks.

Subaru states that the recall only affects cars sold in the “salt belt” states, including Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.

Dealers will inspect recalled vehicles to determine if brake line corrosion has occurred. If a brake fluid leak is detected the lines will be replaced.

Dealers will also rust-proof vulnerable areas of the brake lines with anti-corrosion wax.

Vehicles Included in the Subaru Recall

Vehicles affected by the recall include:

  • 2005-2009 Outback
  • 2005-2009 Legacy
  • 2008-2011 Impreza
  • 2008-2014 Impreza WRX/STI
