According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Subaru (http://autoblog.com/make/subaru) is recalling 74,000 2010 Outback (http://autoblog.com/model/outback) and Legacy (http://autoblog.com/make/legacy)models built between February 16, 2009 and April 12, 2010. It seems that a bundle of wires located behind the steering wheel can develop stress cracks and eventually break. If this happens, some vehicle functions with controls on the steering wheel - such as the horn, cruise and radio controls, paddle shifters and even the driver's airbag - could fail.

Owners of affected vehicles are urged to contact their local dealerships to see if their cars are equipped with a possibly defective steering roll connector. If so, the dealership will replace the component free of charge. Earlier this year, Subaru recalled roughly 30,000 Outback and Legacy models for a leaky CVT transmission hose (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/05/12/subaru-recalling-nearly-30-000-outback-legacy-models-over-cvt-c/).

Full details on this latest recall can be found after the break.

I really feel for any one who has to go through the recall process. This happened to my moms Toyota during that whole blow up. 2009-10, This is the first time I've been happy about having the 2008 Legacy, instead of drooling over that spiffy 2010 like usual. :p Hang tough guys I'm sure subaru will fix this, doesn't sound all that serious/difficult. Unlike sticky gas pedals plowing people into stuff, now that's dangerous.
