Subaru recalls 2013 Legacy, Outback for steering problems
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- Subaru is recalling some of its 2013 Outback and Legacy models for steering problems.
The company says it thought it fixed problems with the inner and outer shafts of the steering column last year before vehicles were shipped to dealers. But two customers complained their steering failed. If the shafts become disengaged, a driver would lose the ability to steer their vehicle.
No accidents or injuries have been reported.
The vehicles under recall were manufactured from Feb. 15, 2012, through June 15, 2012. Subaru says the recall began May 14.
Subaru has begun notifying dealers. Subaru says it will notify car owners, and dealers will replace the steering column assembly with a new one, free of charge.
Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
