Subaru Issues Recall, Stop-Sale Notice for 2012 Impreza, Legacy, Outback


Subaru has issued a recall for about 31,959 2012 Impreza, Legacy and Outback vehicles as well as a stop-sale order to dealers because there’s too much brake pedal travel in these cars, Subaru spokesman Michael McHale told USA Today. The automaker had alerted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which says it will publish a formal recall notice on its website soon.

NHTSA had received about 130 complaints about the braking troubles. Subaru dealers will replace the faulty master cylinders with new ones once they receive them.

Strong sales and supply problems related to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami have kept Subaru dealers’ inventory low, which in turn is keeping this recall’s numbers low.
