The popular, redesigned Subaru Legacy sedan and Outback wagon have been included in another recall. This time, 73,698 vehicles built between Feb. 16, 2009, and April 12, 2010, are being addressed due to a fault on the wiring system in the steering column.

Possible defects could lead to malfunctioning front airbags, paddle shifters, cruise control, horn control and radio controls. You can find out if your car is included in the recall by checking the driver-side doorjamb, where a sticker lists the date of assembly.

Subaru said it would begin contacting owners this month. Owners can contact Subaru at 800-782-2783 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236.
