Subaru, NHTSA Recall Vehicles Due to Braking Issue

In a press release, Subaru of America, in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced a major recall for their year 2012 model versions of its Legacy, Outback and Impreza cars. The company has received approximately 130 complaints of excessive braking. The company says it takes about an hour for mechanics to replace the part. The company has issued “stop-sell” orders¬†to its U.S. dealers on all three vehicles and is working with the NHTSA to ensure the totality of this recall. Approximately 3,000 cars of the aforementioned models have already been sold in North America.
