The Hazard!

April 2005 - Subaru of New Zealand have been advised by FHI (Fuji Heavy Industries, the manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) of a possible safety related issue with 2004 Subaru Legacy models where the rear suspension stabiliser bar may move in its mountings and, under extreme conditions make contact with the rear brake hydraulic hose connection. In the unlikely event that this should occur there will be no warning and a loss of brake fluid will result in a deterioration of braking performance. Total braking will not be lost, as the remaining diagonal braking circuit will activate however the stopping distance and stability will be adversely affected.

What to do...

Please contact a Subaru Authorised Dealer to arrange an appointment to have the recall carried out.
