Japanese automaker Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/) has issued a recall for Model Year 2010-2011 Outback (http://autoblog.com/subaru/outback) and Legacy (http://autoblog.com/subaru/legacy) vehicles manufactured from January 7, 2010, through May 20, 2011. Subaru says faulty components inside the wiper motor's bottom cover could overheat.

According to Subaru, if the motor's bottom cover overheats, the windshield wipers may no longer function, which could lead to reduced visibility and increase the chance of a crash.

Subaru will notify owners of the 195,080 affected Outback and Legacy vehicles by the end of November. As is typically the case, dealers will replace defective components free of charge and owners are urged to contact Subaru for more info.Continue reading Subaru recalls 2010-2011 Legacy, Outback for windshield wiper issue (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/09/12/subaru-recalls-2010-2011-legacy-outback-for-windshield-wiper-is/)

I have several friends who have complained about their Subaru 2010 Legacy's windshield wiper motor (http://www.racepages.com/parts/windshield_wiper_motor.html). Good thing I read this post and I think most of them do not know about this recall. Thanks for posting!
