Subaru recalling Liberty, Outback, Forester and WRX…
Subaru Australia has announced a recall for 2015 Liberty and Outback models, as well as 2015 Forester XT and both 2015 and 2016 WRX models.
SUBARU AUSTRALIA has announced two separate recalls for more than 17,000 2015 Subaru Liberty and Outback, 2015 Forester XT and 2015 and 2016 WRX models. The 2015 Liberty and Outback is being recalled because of an issue with its electric park brake motor which may “stick” and subsequently be unable to release.
Subaru said: “If the EPB does not release, the vehicle will remain in situ until such time as the issue is rectified. This may cause a hazard to the driver and/or other road users”. There are 15,585 vehicles affected and Subaru said it is writing to owners of the affected vehicles, and that the recall work will be performed at no cost to the owner.
The Japanese car maker is also recalling 1941 2015 Forester XT, 2015 and 2016 WRX models due to an issue with the air intake ducts which might be susceptible to cracking and thus lead to a “rough idle”. Subaru said: “The crack may lead rough engine idle, lower engine power and in a worst case scenario, engine stalling, which may posing a potential hazard to the driver and other road users”.
Subaru said it will contact owners when the parts become available and that all recall work will be performed free of charge.
