Subaru issues recall for more than 5K 2013 Outbacks, Legacys

Subaru is issuing a recall for thousands of cars that have a problem that could cause a loss of steering.

The company said 5,379 of its 2013 Outbacks and Legacys might have a steering column shaft that was not correctly assembled that could cause a steering failure.

Not all vehicles in the VIN range will be affected. Officials said the range for the Legacys is D*002001-003605 and the range for the Outbacks is D*200001-204233.

Owners of the vehicles were notified of the issue by mail and email last Tuesday.

A company spokesman told the LA Times that no injuries have been reported as a result of the issue.

The cars were built at Subaru's plant in Indiana. Dealers will replace the steering column at no charge.
