Recall Alert: 2010-2011 Subaru Legacy, 2010-2011 Subaru Outback

2010 Legacy

Subaru is recalling 195,080 2010-2011 Subaru Legacys and Outbacks because of a potential defect with the windshield wipers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

On some models built between Jan. 7, 2010, and May 20, 2011, the windshield wiper motor may overheat, causing it to fail. If this happens, the driver will likely experience reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, the overheated wiper motor can melt its casing and potentially catch fire.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wiper motor assembly free of charge. The recall will begin in November. Owners can call Subaru at 800-782-2783 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
