Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,300 model-year 2016 Subaru Legacy sedans manufactured between Oct. 24 and Nov. 16, 2015, and model-year 2016 Outback wagons manufactured between Oct. 24 and Nov. 17, 2015
The Problem: Due to improper tightening of the securing nuts, the drive shaft may separate from the rear differential and strike the fuel tank, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the fastening nuts, tightening or replacing them as necessary, for free.
