Subaru has issued a statement concerning all units of the 2012 Outback and Legacy models over a possible fire risk.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported that these vehicles may have been assembled with certain covers that could over heat. The cover is designed to protect the wiper motor bottom. This product could overheat, increasing the risk of a fire. The firm has stated that in order to prevent a potential incident and serious injuries, these vehicles will have all wiper motor bottom cover assemblies replaced for free at authorized dealers.

The company has already begun to notify affected owners. As an attorney, I’m glad to learn that Subaru has initiated this recall promptly to prevent injuries. California motorists who are familiar with the issued linked to owning a lemon should be on top of all recall news in order to prevent accidents by making sure your vehicle is repaired when affected by a recall.
