THE AUSTRALIAN COMPETITION AND CONSUMER COMMISSION ARE CRACKING DOWN ON FAULTY SUBARU BRAKE SYSTEMS
Subaru has issued a major recall on 40,000 vehicles following issues with the electronic park brakes.
The models included within this recall are SUV’s, the Liberty Sedan and Wagon models within the years of 2010 to 2014.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) stated in the recall notice, “If the electronic parking brake circuit board fractures, the warning light will illuminate and the EPB cannot be applied or released.”
“If this happens, the vehicle may be in breach of the Australian Design Rules (ADRs) for motor vehicles.”
“It can result in an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users,” the ACCC said.
Subaru vehicle owners will be contacted by mail, issuing a free service check and rectification. If you are unsure whether your vehicle may be affected by this recall, we strongly suggest that you contact your closest Subaru dealership for more information. View the vehicle recall here.
