Subaru Recalls 634,000 Vehicles Citing Potential Fire Hazard
On January 3, 2013, Japanese car maker Subaru announced recall of 634,000 vehicles, including sedans, crossovers, and wagons, sold in the United States, citing potential fire hazard caused by an electrical problem. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has confirmed to have received at least 10 reports of smoke and melting caused by short-circuit in the wiring and connectors of the puddle lamp located under doors of Subaru vehicles when exposed to electrolytic moisture. The Subaru car fire hazard recall covers all 2010 and 2011 Legacy and Outback models, some Tribeca SUVs made from 2006 to 2012, and selected Forester crossovers manufactured between 2009 and 2012.
