Subaru Legacy and Outback Recalled Over Brake Problems
text size: A- A+
It seems that the brake lines in these vehicles are affected by the salt used in some countries to defrost roads during winter. The salty muck reaches the thin tubes through a gap in the fuel tank protector, making them leak brake fluid and greatly increase the stopping distance of the car.
Over 200,000 units are affected by this problem and are recalled by the automaker to solve the issue. They will rust proof the area if it is not corroded yet, or replace the whole brake line if it is punctured.
Subaru said that the number of affected vehicles could change, official numbers still being tallied. Owners can call the automaker at (800) 728-2783 for further information.
