In Canada, nearly 3,500 new Subaru cars are being recalled due to a prospective steering concern that has actually triggered the firm to inform U.S. owners not to drive the vehicles till they are examined.
The recall impacts 2016 Subaru Legacy and Outback models.
“On certain vehicles, steering column components may not have been manufactured to specification and therefore may not engage correctly, which could result in a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property,” Transportation Canada stated in a recall notification on its website.
Transportation Canada stated dealers will check, and if needed, they will replace the steering column.
In the U.S., the business is recalling about 48,500 of the cars from the 2016 and 2017 model years, and it has actually informed dealerships to stop selling them till they are fixed. About 22,000 of the recalled U.S. vehicles have currently been sold, and the rest are still on dealer lots.
Documents published online Friday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration informed owners not to drive their automobiles if they belong to the recall. Owners are being told to have their automobiles pulled to a Subaru dealer.
The U.S. files state the problem was discovered May 3 when the owner of a 2016 Outback reported problem. Subaru states there have been no crashes or injuries.
