A recent CBS News report revealed that Suburu is recalling certain 2016 and 2017 Legacy and Outback vehicles over concerns that the steering could fail and they could lose control. According to the report, Suburu advises owners not to drive them out of concern for their safety. It also has told dealers to stop selling these vehicles until they’re repaired.
The report says that Suburu disclosed in government documents that steering columns may have been manufactured improperly by a parts supplier. The defect means that the steering wheel could rotate freely and the driver could lose control.
Suburu will likely replace these defective parts free of charge. If your vehicle was recalled, get it fixed as soon as possible.
If you were a driver or passenger in a 2016 or 2017 Suburu Outback or Legacy who was injured as a result of losing control of the car, you may have an automotive product liability claim for all of your injuries, pain and suffering, medical expenses and more against Suburu and the part manufacturer.
If your loved one died in a crash involving a 2016 or 2017 Suburu Outback or Legacy, you should have the vehicle inspected to see if the defective part caused or contributed to the crash.
