Share this Article

Subaru is recalling its 2012 model year Outback and Legacy models for an issue with the windshield wiper motor.

Only 16 vehicles in total are affected by the recall, which is an expansion of a recall the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued earlier for 2010-2011 model year Outback and Legacy models.

The issue comes from a wiper motor cover that can overheat and potentially cause a fire, and the vehicles affected were manufactured from April 6, 2011 to April 12, 2011. Subaru has already notified all affected owners and dealers will replace the wiper motor cover for free.
