RECALL ALERT: Subaru Legacy and Outback

Posted: Updated:

Subaru is recalling about 200,000 of Legacy and Outback cars from 2005 to 2009 because of a problem with the brake lines.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration described the issue in a recall notice.

It says the brake lines may corrode if they're splashed by salt water through a gap in the fuel tank protector, making it more difficult to stop.

Subaru said there hadn't been any reports of accidents as a result of the issue, and that the Japan-based company was simply being "super conservative."

Subaru plans to notify owners and fix the problem at dealerships free of charge.
