Recall Up Date: 2012 Subaru Legacy & Outback

Subaru is recalling certain 2012 Subaru Legacy and Outback models due to side curtain airbags with an incorrect mixture of propellant, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The Problem: The incorrect propellant mixture may not be sufficient enough for the initiator component to expel the compressed gas preventing the side curtain airbags from deploying on certain 2012 Subaru Legacy and Outback models. Without proper inflation of the side curtain airbags on the affected 2012 Subaru Legacy and Outback models, risk of injury for occupants during a side impact could increase.

The Fix: Subaru will begin notifying owners of 2012 Subaru Legacy and Outback models as well as dealers around the end of March or the beginning of April. Dealers will replace one or both side curtain airbag modules for free. Concerned owners can also contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: Only 381 2012 Subaru Legacy and Outback models built between December 1, 2011, through December 23, 2011 are affected. no reported deaths or injuries have been linked to the recall.
