We are afraid to tell you that there is yet another vehicle recall, this time involving the 2009 and 2010 Subaru Outback and Legacy models. The vehicles are being recalled due to wires behind the steering wheel that could crack then break.
The Outback and Legacy models affected by this were built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010; there is thought to be 74,000 being recalled. If these wires crack, then there is a chance that some of the function on the steering wheel will fail to work – one of which could be the air bag.
Jeremy Korzeniewski from Autoblog explains that those who own one of the affected vehicles are asked to contact their local Subaru dealer, they will then be checked to see if they have the faulty steering roll connector. If it does, then the problem will be fixed at no cost to you.
