Subaru recalls 3,500 new cars in Canada over steering issues

Don’t panic, but if you happen to own one of these 3,500 new Subaru cars, a steering problem could result in a “loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.”

In total,  3,494 cars, including 2016 Subaru Legacy and Outback models have been recalled.

Transport Canada has a stark warning for owners: “owners are advised to not drive their vehicle until an inspection of the steering column has been completed.”

On certain vehicles, steering column components may not have been manufactured to specification and therefore may not engage correctly, which could result in a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect, and if necessary, replace the steering column. Note: In the interim, owners are advised to not drive their vehicle until an inspection of the steering column has been completed.
