Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V153
Summary:
This applies to certain passenger vehicles sold or currently registered in the States of Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and the District of Columbia. Certain rear suspension subframe components were produced with poor paint quality which, after continued exposure to corrosive road salts for a period of several years, could result in rust-out of the component and possible breakage of the subframe. If such breakage occurs while the vehicle is being operated, control of the vehicle could be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will clean and rust-proof the rear suspension subframe. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during June or July 2003. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
04V128
Summary:
On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the cruise control cable could come out of its track on the cruise control lever and lodge on the control lever tab when the accelerator pedal is released. If this condition occurs, the throttle will not return to the idle position and will remain in an open position. If this occurs during vehicle operation, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, which could result in a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will install a cruise control cable retaining clip to the cruise control lever tab on the throttle shaft in order to prevent the cruise control cable from coming out of its track.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V240
Summary:
On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles with 4-cylinder engines, the water pump pulley center hole was improperly machined. In some instances, the interference fit between the inner wall of the pulley center hole and the water pump drive shaft was not as tight as specified in the drawing specification. This could result in the water pump pulley dislodging from the water pump shaft, which can cause severe engine damage/seizure during vehicle usage.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the water pump. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Sept. 12, 2002. Owners should contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V282
Summary:
Certain passenger and sport utility vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions were produced with an improperly manufactured transmission parking rod. When the transmission selector lever is placed in the "P" (Park) position, the transmission park mechanism, which is intended to hold the vehicle, may not engage. The vehicle could then move/roll without prior warning, increasing the risk of a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the automatic transmission parking rod assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during January 2003. An interim owner notification will be sent during November 2002. Owners should contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
