JULY 2014 -- Subaru of America, Inc.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will test the brake system by depressing the brake pedal and inspecting for brake fluid leaks. If no brake fluid seepage is observed, the affected areas will be rustproofed with anti-corrosion wax. If brake fluid seepage is observed, the brake lines will be replaced followed by rustproofing with anti-corrosion wax. These services will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Subaru's recall campaign number is WQK-47. Note: This recall supersedes recall 13V-110 which applied to certain 2005-2009 Legacy/Outback vehicles. Vehicles that were remedied under the previous campaign still need additional areas rust-proofed.

NEWS:   Subaru Recalls Outback, Legacy, Forester and Impreza Models

YAHOO NEWS -- September 12,  2011 – Subaru has announced two major recalls, affecting 195,080 model year 2010 and 2011 Subaru Legacy and Outback models and 295,123 Subaru Forester, Impreza and Saab 9-2X models built between 2002 and 2008.

The recall for the 2010-2011 Subaru Legacy and Outback models relates to an overheating condition in the windshield wiper motor assembly lower cover. Should the motor and associated components overheat to the point of motor failure, operator visibility in wet conditions will diminish, increasing the likelihood of a crash. There is also a potential fire risk from the overheated component contacting the bottom plastic resin panel of the wiper motor assembly.

The repair involves replacing the windshield wiper motor assembly bottom cover with one of proper dimensions. Dealers will replace the front wiper motor bottom cover at no charge to consumers when the recall begins in November of 2011.

The second recall campaign begun by Subaru involves certain 2002-2007 Impreza models, 2003-2008 Forester models and 2005-2006 Saab 9-2X models, sold or currently registered in Northeast or Midwestern states that use snow-melting agents such as road salt.

When driven in corrosive environments, some vehicles may experience the front lower control arm breaking at the joint with the hanger bracket. A broken lower control arm can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the likelihood of an accident.

Specific states included in this second recall are Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Dealers will inspect the lower control arms of affected vehicles and wither rustproof or replace them as necessary when the recall begins in November of 2011.

For both recalls, customers with questions or concerns can reach Subaru’s customer service hotline at 800-782-2783, or they may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.

SEPTEMBER 2011 -- Subaru is recalling certain model year 2002-2007 Impreza, model year 2003-2008 Forester, and model year 2005-2006 Saab 9-2X vehicles manufactured from September 5, 2000 through November 26, 2007 originally sold, or currently registered in, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. The front lower control arms may break at the hanger brackets due to corrosion if the hanger bracket is exposed to salty and humid environments such as roads containing snow melting agent. A broken control arm can result in the loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Subaru dealers will inspect the degree of corrosion of the front lower control arms, and will either rustproof or replace them. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2011.   11V-464


DECEMBER 2009 - Subaru is recalling certain model year 2002 and 2003 Impreza WRX vehicles originally sold in or currently registered in the states of South Dakota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Colorado, Wisconsin, New York, Wyoming, Michigan, Alaska, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. During cold starts, typically under extremely cold temperatures, fuel leaks in the fuel delivery line could occur where the line connects with a rubber hose. Fuel leaks, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel line free of charge. The recall began on December 31, 2009. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. 09V-468

SEPTEMBER 2008 -- Subaru is recalling 16,715 MY 2007-2008 Legacy sedans and wagons, MY 2008 Impreza sedans and wagons, and MY 2009 Forester vehicles. Some vehicles may have the cylinder head-side oil supply pipe and turbocharger-side pipe improperly assembled. Vibration could occur while driving and, over time, could eventually result in cracking the pipe which would allow oil to leak. If leaking oil contacts components operating at high temperatures, an engine compartment fire could occur. Dealers will inspect for cracking or an oil leak at the oil supply pipe at the cylinder head-side. An additional bracket will be installed to increase rigidity of the pipe and the pipe assembly will be replaced with a modified part. The recall is expected to begin during November 2008.  08V460

MARCH 2008 -- Subaru is recalling 36,791 MY 2002-2003 Impreza wagons. The stud bolt(s) of the rear gate stay may have been tightened with insufficient tightening torque and a gap may have resulted between the rear gate panel and stud bolt base. After repeated rear gate operations (opening and closing), the rear gate inner panel at the welding nut may break, which will lead to detachment of the rear gate stay, and the rear gate dropping down. In case someone is underneath or near the rear gate, there is a possibility that a dropping rear gate panel may hit them increasing the risk of injuries. Dealers will inspect to see if there is any gap at the stud bolt of the rear gate stay installation. If a gap is found, the stud bolt will be removed to check for damage to the welding nut. If the weld nut is cracked, the rear gate stay will be replaced. The recall is expected to begin on or before June 2, 2008. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru Recall No. WVD-14. 08V135
