2010 Subaru Legacy & Outback recalled again

Share Button

According to the NHTSA, Subaru of America is recalling 74,000 units of the 2010 Outback and Legacy, built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010. It seems that a bundle of wires located behind the steering wheel can develop stress cracks and eventually break.

If this happens, some vehicle functions with controls on the steering wheel could fail, such as the horn, cruise and radio controls, paddle shifters and even the driver’s airbag.

Owners of affected vehicles are urged to contact their local dealerships to see if their cars are equipped with a possibly defective steering roll connector. If so, the dealership will replace the component free of charge. Earlier this year, Subaru recalled about 30,000 Outback and Legacy models for a leaky CVT transmission hose.
