2007 Subaru Outback Problems

Vibtation or Shutter on Acceleration

A vibration or shutter may be noted on acceleration. If the transmission torque converter is suspected a revised part is available to correct this concern.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Front O2 Sensor

The front oxygen (air fuel ratio) sensor element may develop a crack, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Subaru has recalled certain models to replace sensors that may fail. The Subaru service program number is WXW-80, this is not a government mandated recall.

Cooling System Problems Cause Head Gasket Failure

The head gasket has a high failure rate due to cooling system problems. Subaru is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty to 8 years/100k miles on many vehicles.

2007 Subaru Outback Recalls

Brake Fluid Leaks From Corroded Lines

Brake lines may corrode excessively when salt water splashes behind a gap in the fuel tank protector. This can lead to brake line failure and leakage, and cause the brakes to fail. Dealers will inspect for leaking lines, apply rust proofing wax and replace lines found to be leaking free of charge to resolve the concern.

Braking Issues Due to Brake Fluid Leak

In areas where salt is used on the roads, slush containing road salt can splash through a gap in the fuel tank protector resulting in corrosion of the brake lines. This corrosion may lead to brake fluid leakage resulting in reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and leaking brake lines will be replaced. Anti-corrosion rustproofing wax will be applied to all recalled vehicles.
