Subaru of America is recalling 74,000 Outback and Legacy 2010 models, after the carmaker recalled last month almost 30,000 Legacy and Outback due to a fault in the CVT cooler hose.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Subaru has started a recall campaign because of defective wiring in the steering column.
There is the possibility that the wiring in a steering column connector located behind the steering wheel to develop stress cracks and eventually break, which could then damage the surrounding electrical circuits. If this happens, many electrical components may not operate as intended, including the airbag, which makes this a safety related defect.
Possible circuits affected are the driver's frontal airbag, paddle shifter function, cruise control, horn control and radio function. If this happens, the risk of a crash increases.
The recalled models affected by this issue were built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010. Dealers will check lot number of the steering roll connector and replace defective ones. This service will be performed free of charge at Subaru's nationwide dealers.
Launched at the New York Auto Show in 2009 with a starting price of $22,995, the 2010 Outback comes equipped with Vehicle Dynamics Controls (VDC) and Hill Holder System as standard. The Legacy has a price of $19,995 and it's fitted with McPherson strut, rear double-wishbone suspension with front and rear stabilizer bars for improved ride & handling.
