On certain Legacy, Outback H-6 3.0L and Impreza WRX 2.0L Turbo, the cruise control cable could come out of its track on the cruise control lever and lodge on the control lever tab when the accelerator pedal is released. If this condition occurs, the throttle will not return to the idle position which may cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. Correction: Dealer will install a retaining clip to the cruise control lever tab.
On certain vehicles operated in the "salt-belt" provinces of Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. The rear suspension subframe components were produced with poor paint quality which, after continued exposure to corrosive road salts for a period of several years, may result in rust-out of the component and possible breakage of the subframe. Correction: Dealer will clean and rust-proof with anti-rust oil and anti-rust wax.
On certain vehicles, the inner seat-rail rail locking pawl may be improperly welded to the moveable adjustment lever rod. After several seat adjustments, the spot welds holding the locking pawl to the rod may break loose. This could cause the locking pawl to possibly fall out of position and fail to lock the inner seat rail of the seat. This condition could increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a sudden stop or vehicle crash. Correction: Suspect inner front seat-rails will be replaced.
On certain vehicles, separation of fuel hose layers and heat deterioration of the fuel hose can result in fuel leakage in very cold temperatures. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source could result in an underhood fire. These fuel hoses were produced under Lot Numbers 0804 and 0806. Correction: Vehicles will be inspected and all fuel hoses with Lot Numbers 0804 and 0806 will be replaced.
On certain vehicles with beige interiors, during production of the rear center lap/shoulder belts for the Legacy Sedan, the lap/shoulder belt webbing was cut to the same length of webbing used on Legacy Station Wagon models (2620 mm). The sedan belt length should be 2800 mm. Correction: Dealers will replace the rear center lap/shoulder belts.
On certain vehicles, improperly cast right front bearing housings could cause grease leakage, front wheel bearing failure due to loss of grease, or the possibility of steering loss due to tie rod separation. This could result in loss of vehicle control and a crash. Correction: Affected right front bearing housings will be replaced.
