Japanese automaker Subaru has issued a recall for Model Year 2010-2011 Outback and 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.
I have several friends who have complained about their Subaru 2010 Legacy's windshield wiper motor. Good thing I read this post and I think most of them do not know about this recall. Thanks for posting!
