Subaru is recalling over 29,443 2010 Legacy and Outback models, manufactured between July 31 and December 1, 2009 and hasn't mentioned any safety hazards in their recall notice. The recall affects only those models equipped with a continuously variable transmission, or CVT.
The recall was made due to a possible crack that can occur in the CVT cooler hose, which can result in a fluid leak. Subaru has not revealed the consequence of the crack, but a high pressure hose leak could lead to a fire.
Owners will be notified in the coming weeks to bring the vehicle to a dealership where the cooler hoses will be replaced free of charge.
