A few months after being recalled for a flawed CVT cooler hose that could potentially crack or split, Subaru has issued another recall for their two models, with this latest issue being a wiring problem in the steering column behind the vehicle’s steering wheel that could develop stress cracks and, in turn, lead to an eventual break. This break could end up shutting down a number of the vehicle’s electrical components, including the cruise and radio controls, paddle shifters, and car horn, in the process.
All in all, over 74,000 models of both the 2010 Outback SUV and the Legacy sedan built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010 are being subjected to the recall.
Owners of the said models are now being requested to get in contact with any of their local Subaru dealerships so in the event their vehicles are covered in the recall, the dealerships can take action and replace any of the defective parts at no cost.
It’s not the kind of news Subaru – or any other automaker – is looking to be attached to, but now that it is, it’s good to know that they’re making the effort in fixing the problem before the situation gets any worse.
