Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Subaru issued a recall

In case you have not heard yet, last week three carmakers have issued recalls for some of their models. The problems are completely unrelated. The first action comes from Alfa-Romeo and Maserati and the second one comes from Subaru. The North American division of the Maserati has issued the recall for several 2005-2008 models involving the Quattroporte, 2008 Granturismo and on the other hand the 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C cars. It seems that the rear tie rod assemblies on these cars may not have sufficient anti-corrosion material applied. This could lead to rust and weaken. In the end it could lead to a possible fail. If the tie rods fail, the driver might lose control on the vehicle and so the risk of a crash would increase. This is what Maserati declared for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The specialists said that they will replace the tie rods assemblies on the affected models free of charge starting with the end of June this year. They will have to fix approximately 7.438 units.



Moving on, the North American division of Subaru has also issued a recall involving certain models year 2013 Outback and Legacy models manufactured from February 2013 through June 2012. The problem seems to have to do with the inner and outer shafts of the steering column assembly. Subaru said that the shafts may become disengaged from one another and if this is the case, the driver would lose the ability to steer the vehicle. To fix it the carmaker will replace the steering column assembly with a new one, free of charge, of course. The recall will start this May. In March the carmaker had another recall on the same models.
