Recall Alert: 2010 Subaru Legacy and Outback

Jul 07, 2010

The 2010 Subaru Legacy and Outback are being recalled for issues related to their steering columns. Roughly 74,000 models manufactured between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010 are affected.

According to the NHTSA: “The wiring in the steering column electrical roll connector located behind the vehicle’s steering wheel may develop stress cracks and eventually break. If this were to happen certain electrical components may not operate as intended.”

Those electrical components are vital to passenger safety. Cars.com explains, “Possible defects could lead to malfunctioning front airbags, paddle shifters, cruise control, horn control and radio controls.”

To determine whether or not your vehicle is affected, check its manufacture date -- located on the sticker placed in its door jam. If it is, Subaru will fix the problem free of charge. Contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 with any questions or concerns.
