2011 Subaru Legacy, Outback Models Recalled For Sunroof Flaw

September 15, 2011
Subaru is recalling 69,590 model year 2011 Outback and Legacy models built between August 3, 2010 and July 1, 2011. On certain models, an insufficient amount of adhesive was used to attach the moonroof glass to the retainer assembly. As a result, the moonroof glass can loosen and potentially detach from the vehicle, creating a road hazard for other drivers.

Subaru dealers will inspect the moonroof glass to determine if the proper amount of adhesive was used. Dealers will repair or replace the moonroof glass assembly as required, at no charge to owners.

The recall is expected to begin in October 2011, but those with questions or concerns may contact Subaru’s customer service hotline at 800-782-2783. Alternatively, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline can also provide updates on this recall, and the agency can be reached at 888-327-4236.

This is the second recall of Subaru Outback and Legacy models this month. The automaker had previously announced a recall of 2010 and 2011 model year Outback and Legacy models to to address a flaw in the windshield wiper motor assembly.
