Recall Alert: 2012 Subaru Outback and Legacy


Subaru is recalling just 14 model-year 2012 Outback wagons and Legacy sedans due to a problem with the moonroof glass that could cause it to detach, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Affected vehicles were manufactured between April 6 and May 12, 2011. An inadequate amount and position of adhesive between the glass and retainer of the moonroof could cause the glass to loosen and detach while driving, creating a potential road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash, according to NHTSA.

Subaru has already notified affected owners, and dealers will inspect the condition of the glass adhesion and either apply additional adhesive or replace the moonroof glass for free, according to NHTSA. For more info, owners can call NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to

Earlier this month, NHTSA announced that Subaru was recalling just 16 model-year 2012 Outback and Legacy vehicles also manufactured from April 6 to May 12, 2011. That recall stemmed from a problem with the windshield wiper motor and was an expansion of a previous recall from 2011.
