Subaru Legacy & Outback 2010 models recalled again
Subaru is recalling 74,000 vehicles, all 2010 Outback and Legacy models, built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010 in the United States. This is the second recall on these models after an earlier one for a CVT hose fluid leak.
The U.S. NHTSA safety agency says that “a bundle of wires located behind the steering wheel can develop stress cracks and eventually break. If this happens, some vehicle functions with controls on the steering wheel could fail, including the horn, cruise and radio controls, paddle shifters and the driver’s airbag.”
U.S. owners of affected vehicles can contact their local dealership to see if their cars are equipped with a defective steering roll connector or not, for free replacement. It is unknown if cars in the UAE and other GCC countries are affected.
