2013 Subaru Outback Recalls

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.

Loss of Steering Possible

The steering column contains several components that work together to transmit the rotating motion of the steering wheel to the steering rack. These vehicles are being recalled because the inner and outer shafts of the steering column may separate from each other. If this were to occur the driver would not be able to steer the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering column assembly to correct this 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.
