Subaru Australia has issued a recall for nearly 76,000 vehicles from its Liberty, Outback and Tribeca lines as part of the ongoing Takata airbag scandal.
Takata’s airbags have the potential to release metal fragments when they are deployed as a result of moisture intrusion, and are now the subject of the largest automotive recall in history.
The latest Subaru models to be recalled are listed below:
2004-2009 Subaru Liberty
2004-2009 Subaru Outback
2007-2009 Subaru Tribeca
A total of 72,022 Liberty and Outback vehicles are affected, with a further 3921 Tribeca included in the recall.
Subaru says so far there have been no reported incidents of airbag failure in its models locally.
It’s currently estimated that the replacement parts for recall repairs will be available from October. Recall work will be conducted free of charge, and is expected to take around 1.7 hours.
