Subaru Recalls Outbacks and Legacy Models

According to an article on CNN.com, Subaru is recalling about 200,000 Legacy and Outback model vehicles because of a problem with the brake line.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall notice that said the brake lines may corrode if they are splashed by salt water through a gap in the fuel tank protector. This can make it difficult to stop. The recall is limited to cars currently or formerly registered in a list of 20 states plus Washington, DC, that salt their roads. The list of states is available in the recall notice. The models years affected are from 2005 to 2009.

Subaru will notify owners and will fix the problem free of charge at dealerships. There have been no reports of accidents so far as a result of this issue.
