Subaru Outback & Legacy 2010 models suffer U.S. recall

Subaru Outback & Legacy 2010 models suffer U.S. recall

The U.S. NHTSA safety agency has announced a recall for the 2010 Subaru Outback or Legacy equipped with a CVT transmission. The recall is for 29,443 Legacy and Outback models, for a crack that can occur in the CVT cooler hose that could result in a fluid leak. The only vehicles affected by the recall are the ones built between July 31 and December 1, 2009 at Subaru’s U.S. factories.

Subaru didn’t provide any safety consequences for this recall, but a CVT fluid leak could possibly lead to a damaged transmission. Affected vehicles can be brought to the nearest Subaru dealer to have the hose replaced free of charge. If you’re not sure if your vehicle falls under the recall, you can bother the local dealer, although their likely answer will be GCC-spec Subaru models come here from Japan instead of from the United States.

Keep track of UAE prices and GCC updates in the Subaru buyer guide.
