Subaru of America, Inc. has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2016 and 2017 model year Legacy and Outback vehicles. The company is warning owners not to drive the car until it has been inspected and, if necessary, the recall repair has been performed.
The steering column in the vehicle may not have been manufactured to specification. An incorrect tool setting during the manufacturing process may have resulted in improper machining of one of the steering column shafts. If this condition exists, turning the steering wheel may have no effect on the direction of the wheels, increasing the risk of a crash.
Subaru is urging owners to contact the retailer (dealer) as soon as possible to make arrangements to have the vehicle towed to their facility, at no cost, and inspected. If the inspection determines that the defect is not present, the vehicle will be safe to drive. If the defect is found, the steering column will be replaced.
If you prefer to make alternative arrangements for having your vehicle towed to your retailer, you may contact the Subaru Roadside Assistance Program at 1-800-261-2155. For convenience, your retailer will provide a loaner or rental vehicle at no cost until the car has been repaired.
