Recall Alert : Subaru 2017 Outback

RECALL Subject : Loose Bolts may affect Braking and Handling

Report Receipt Date: AUG 03, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V576000
Component(s): SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC , SUSPENSION
Potential Number of Units Affected: 99


Manufacturer: Subaru of America, Inc.

SUMMARY:

Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2017 Outback vehicles manufactured June 20, 2016, to June 23, 2016. The affected vehicles may have improperly tightened attaching bolts for the front left and right brake calipers, wheel hubs, and the right stabilizer clamp.
CONSEQUENCE:
If any of the front brake caliper, wheel hub or stabilizer clamp attaching bolts loosen or detach, the related components would also become loose and may detach possibly making the vehicle unstable and reducing the braking capability. These conditions would increase the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Subaru has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the bolts for proper torque, and replace any loose bolts, free of charge. The recall began on August 8, 2016. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru's number for this recall is WTE-66.
