2020 Subaru Outback, 2020 Legacy Recalled Due to Brake Problem

3,467 Subaru Outback and Legacy Models Recalled

Subaru has announced on Sept. 18th that it is recalling certain 2020 Subaru Outback and 2020 Subaru Legacy vehicles due to a brake issue.

The vehicles, many which are just arriving at dealerships, are the redesigned wagon-like crossover and sedans.

At issue is a missing or loose bolt in the brake pedal mount. If this happens, a driver’s ability to brake may be impaired and this poses an increased risk of a collision.  Only 3,467 of these models — 2,862 Outbacks and 605 Legacy sedans.  The Outback models were made between July 30, 2019, and August 29, 2020. The Legacy models were built between July 31, 2019, and August 26, 2019. It’s important to note that not all of the new 2020 Legacy or Outback models made at that time are subject to the recall.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration was alerted to the recall.

Owners of the affected Subaru vehicles will be notified by the manufacturer either by mail or email. They should have the dealership inspect and replace the hardware or brake pedal assembly as needed.

For more information, contact Subaru customer service at 1-844-373-6614, visit the Subaru recall site, or check their VIN with federal officials.

Motorists who are grappling with ongoing problems with their 2020 Subaru outback, 2020 Subaru Legacy or any other vehicle, could be eligible for compensation under California and or Federal Lemon Laws.
