2011 Subaru Outback Recalls

Passenger Air Bag Inflator Ruptures During Deployment Spraying Metal Fragments

The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.

Windshield Wipers Stop Working

The components within the windshield wiper motor bottom cover may interfere with each other due to contamination. This can cause the motor to overheat, fail to operate and result in a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor bottom cover assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

The Engine May Start Unexpectedly

On 2010-2013 Subaru models equipped with an automatic transmission and Audiovox accessory remote start system, if the key fob is dropped it may begin randomly transmitting a request to start the engine, causing the engine to unexpectedly start and run for up to 15 minutes. The engine may continue to start and stop until the battery in the fob goes dead or until the vehicle runs out of fuel. If the vehicle is parked in an enclosed area, there is a risk of carbon monoxide build-up which may cause asphyxiation. Original equipment keyless entry fobs integrated on the vehicle key are not affected. Dealers will replace the affected key fobs to correct this concern.
