The Subaru recall of the 2013 Outback and Legacy is due to steering column problems.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Subaru recalls in 2013 have been for a diverse number of engineering issues.

One Subaru recall caused 200,000 of its all-wheel-drive vehicles to be yanked off the road to fix a defect which could lead to corrosion of the brake lines.

An earlier Subaru recall for 2013 was an odd one where 50,000 vehicles could creepily start by themselves like zombie cars. The issue was the result of a remote starter glitch.

The newest Subaru recall in 2013 affects the 2013 Legacys and Outbacks. Reports say the steering column shaft is made from two parts that can potentially become separated.

Although this Subaru recall was not prompted by any known accidents, it’s possible drivers could completely lose control of their vehicles. As such, the Subaru recall for the 2013 Legacy and Outback includes free towing to dealerships in addition to the free replacement of the part effected.

Subaru has notified dealerships of the recall but they won’t begin notifying 2013 Legacy and Outback owners until 30 days from now.
