Subaru has announced a recall of 73,698 2010 Outback and Legacy models due to a potential problem with the steering column.
Wiring located in the steering column electrical roll connector could develop stress cracks and break, potentially causing certain electrical components to be unable to operate.
Those components include the paddle shifters, the horn, the driver's side airbag, cruise control, and the radio. Failure of these components could negatively affect safety.
The models were produced between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010. Dealers will check potentially affected cars to see if a replacement for the electrical roll connector is needed and perform the repair if necessary, free of charge.
Owners can contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783 or the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236.
