Recall number: 13V110000
Recall date: 03/27/2013

Problem Summary:

SUBARU IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2009 OUTBACK AND LEGACY VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM DECEMBER 2003, THROUGH APRIL 2009 AND CURRENTLY, OR FORMERLY, REGISTERED IN CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, IOWA, MAINE, MARYLAND, MASSACHUSETTS, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, VERMONT, WEST VIRGINIA, WISCONSIN AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. SALT WATER COULD SPLASH ON THE BRAKE LINES THROUGH A GAP IN THE FUEL TANK PROTECTOR, RESULTING IN EXCESSIVE CORROSION OF THE BRAKE LINES.

BRAKE LINE CORROSION MAY RESULT IN BRAKE FLUID LEAKAGE. FLUID LEAKAGE MAY RESULT IN LONGER DISTANCES BEING REQUIRED TO SLOW OR STOP THE VEHICLE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Corrective Action:

SUBARU WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE VEHICLES. IF NO BRAKE FLUID SEEPAGE IS OBSERVED, THE AFFECTED AREA WILL BE RUSTPROOFED WITH ANTI-CORROSION WAX.

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 BEGAN ON OCTOBER 20, 2008.
