Vehicles Affected: Approximately 100 model-year 2017 Subaru Outback wagons manufactured between June 20 and June 23, 2016
The Problem: Attaching bolts for the front-left and -right brake calipers, wheel hubs and right stabilizer clamp may have been improperly tightened. If any of the front brake caliper, wheel hub or stabilizer clamp attaching bolts loosen or detach, the related components would also become loose and may detach, possibly making the vehicle unstable and reducing braking capability, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the bolts for proper torque and replace any loose bolts for free.
What Owners Should Do: Subaru began notifying owners on Aug. 8. Owners can call the automaker at 800-782-2783 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
