Subaru Hit with Three Recalls in September 2011

May 31, 2012
Colson Hicks Eidson

Take note of this if you drive a Subaru: in September 2011 Suburu pronounced over half a million Subaru vehicles subjects of vehicle recalls for loose moon roof glass that can fly off, windshield wiper motors that can catch fire and corroded control arms that can cause a loss of control.

The models recalled for defective control arms are the Impreza, Forester and Saab 9-2X, all manufactured from September 5, 2000 to November 26, 2007. According to aboutlawsuits.com, the cars affected by the recall are in states that use heavy road salt in the winter. The salt can corrode the lower control arms and cause the driver to lose control of the car.

The Subaru Outback and Legacy models have wiper motors that can overheat and start a fire, according to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The same models have glass moon roofs that can come loose while the car is in motion. Apparently, the maker did not use enough adhesive to secure the glass.

If you have a vehicle subject to any of these recalls, Subaru intends to replace the defective components free of charge. So far, there have been no reports of injuries from the affected automobiles.
