Subaru recalls 660K vehicles for stop line rust

DETROIT (AP) — Subaru is recalling some-more than 660,000 cars and SUVs since a stop lines can decay and trickle fluid, and that can meant it will take longer to stop a vehicles.

For about half a vehicles, it’s a second remember for a same problem.

Affected are 2005 by 2009 Legacy and Outback, a 2008 by 2014 Impreza and a 2009 by 2013 Forester.

It covers vehicles sole or purebred in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to transparent roads in a winter.

The association says in papers filed with a U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that tainted H2O can dash onto a stop lines by a opening in a fuel tank protector, causing rust. If they trickle fluid, it could take longer to stop a automobile and boost a risk of a crash.

Dealers will check a lines and reinstate them if leaks are found. They’ll also request anti-corrosion wax.

About 274,000 Legacy and Outback vehicles were removed for a same problem in Mar of final year. The reserve group says additional areas have to be rust-proofed in those cars.
