Subaru Recalls Vehicles with Defective Takata Airbags

Tina Robinson3 years ago

On Tuesday, the number of automakers that have recalled vehicles with Takata airbags expanded as Subaru announced a recall of its own. According to the New York Times, Subaru plans to recall certain Legacy Outback and Baja vehicles that could have been installed with the defective airbag inflators.

About the Subaru Airbag Recall

Subaru has announced that it will recall approximately 8,500 Legacy Outback and Baja vehicles due to the potential for the airbags to deploy with too much pressure, sending metal fragments flying at vehicle occupants. Subaru joins a list of seven other automakers including Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Ford, Chrysler, and BMW that have recalled vehicles due to the Takata airbag defect.

Unlike the other auto manufacturers, Subaru has recalled all of its vehicles worldwide. The other companies have issued limited regional recalls for areas of the U.S. that have high moisture.

Subaru has said it is unaware of any injuries or deaths associated with the recall. However, the Takata airbags have been linked to two deaths that occurred in 2009 involving Honda vehicles.

Description of the Recalled Subaru Vehicles

The following vehicles are affected by the Subaru recall:

  • 2003-2004 Subaru Legacy Outback
  • 2003-2004 Subaru Baja
