The Hazard!

July 2004 - Subaru of New Zealand have been advised by Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI, the manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) of a potential safety problem. There is a possibility that the cruise control cable could come out of its track on the cruise control lever and lodge on the control lever tab when the accelerator pedal is released. If this condition occurs, the throttle will not return to the idle position but may remain in the open position.

What to do...

Please contact a Subaru Authorised Dealer to arrange an appointment to have the recall carried out. To locate the nearest Subaru Authorised Dealer please access our website at www.subaru.co.nz and click on “Locate a dealer”.
