The Hazard!

December 2008 - Fuji Heavy Industries (the Japanese manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) has advised Subaru of New Zealand that the VDC ‘G’ sensor in model year 2008 – 2009 Subaru Tribeca vehicles may have been installed incorrectly in the wrong direction potentially causing incorrect operation. There is a safety risk, as it is possible for the VDC system to malfunction, causing the vehicle to become unstable which may ultimately lead to a loss of driver control.

What to do...
