Are you planning to watch the moon by using moonroof glass with you 2011 Subaru Legacy sedan and 2011 Subaru Outback? Cancel that plan because the North American Subaru is recalling almost 69,590 units of 2011 Subaru Legacy and Outback due to moonroof glass problem. Okay, it seems very scary, what is wrong the moonroof glass on both vehicles? Both 2011 model year of Subaru Legacy and Outback which equip with moonroof are suspected that the moonroof can be detach by itself during driving activity. Now, you don’t want that moonroof falling onto your head, do you?
The National HighwayTraffic Safety Administration – NHTSA confirmed that during the assembling of 2011 Subaru Outback and Subaru Legacy, the moonroof glass was not properly glued to the retainer which led to possibility that the moonroof glass could come off while driving.
Here is the official statement from NTHSA about the moonroof issue on 2011 Subaru Legacy and 2011 Subaru Outback, “The moonroof glass comes loose or off. “The amount and position of the adhesive between the glass and retainer was inadequately applied. The moonroof glass can loosen and detach from the vehicle during driving, resulting in a potential road hazard for other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.”
Owners of the affected vehicles must take their cars to the authorized Subaru dealers where the moonroof glass adhesion will be checked by specialist. Suppose the vehicle does suffer improper adhesion, it will be giving extra adhesive or replacing the part. The repairing campaign will be started in October or for further information, feel free to contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
Just so you know, the 2011 Legacy and Outback had suffered from recalled earlier this week, while the 2010 and 2011 model year have been withdrawn three times last year.
