The affected Legacy was manufactured between October 24, to November 16, 2015, and the Outback was built from October 24 to November 17, 2015.

2016 Subaru Legacy recall starts

There is the possibility that the bolts that secure the rear differential to the drive shaft may not have been tightened correctly.

If the bolts become too loose, then there is a chance that the drive shaft could become detached from the differential, and in doing so could hit the fuel tank and cause a fire – although this is only in extreme circumstance.

Thankfully there have been no reported accidents or injuries. Subaru will check these nuts and tighten as necessary.
