Japanese automaker Subaru has been tasked by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to have two of their new models - the 2010 Legacy sedan and the Outback crossover - recalled over a flawed CVT cooler hose. It turns out that these CVT cooler hoses are susceptible to cracking or splitting, which could then lead to a fluid leak.
When that happens while the vehicles are being driven, it could potentially turn into a dangerous situation when the vehicle stops and could result in a crash. All in all, the recall is said to affect a total number of 29,443 models in the US with Subaru already informing all model owners to drop by their local Subaru dealerships to have the CVT cooler hoses replaced at no cost.
So, any owners who have either the 2010 Legacy sedan or the Outback crossover that fall under this recall, please can contact Subaru at 1-856-488-8500 to inquire about how to get this situation fixed.
