Subaru Recalls 660,000 Vehicles

The car manufacturer Subaru is recalling 660,000 vehicles as a result of brake line rust caused in part by salt spread on roads in winter months. Minnesota is one of 20 states (and the District of Columbia) affected by the recall.

According to the company, salty water can splash onto the brake lines causing rust, erosion, and fluid leakage. While no injuries or accidents have been reported as a result of this defect, such problems can cause a potentially catastrophic delay in braking.

The recalled vehicles include:

  • 2005-2009 Legacy
  • 2005-2009 Outback
  • 2008-2014 Impreza
  • 2009-2013 Forester

GoldenbergLaw’s Minneapolis personal injury lawyers recognize that driving in Minnesota’s winters are tough enough even when everything is working properly with your vehicle. Rusting brake lines just make an already dangerous situation even worse.

If you own one of these vehicles, you should contact your local Subaru dealer as soon as possible. The dealer will replace any rusted or corroded material and apply anti-corrosion wax.

If you’re a Minnesota resident who has been hurt by a defective vehicle or other product, you should speak to our personal injury lawyers immediately. Please contact GoldenbergLaw today for a free consultation.
