Recall 2012 Subaru Impreza, Legacy and Outback 3000 Vehicles>

December 2, 2011, National Highway Travel Safety Administration (NHTSA) has received about 130 complaints about the braking troubles. Subaru dealers will replace the faulty master cylinders with new ones once they receive them.

Subaru has issued a recall for about 3,000 2012 Impreza, Legacy and Outback vehicles as well as a stop-sale order to dealers because there’s too much brake pedal travel in these cars, Subaru spokesman Michael McHale told USA Today. The automaker had alerted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which says it will publish a formal recall notice on its website soon.

Strong sales and supply problems related to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami have kept Subaru dealers’ inventory low, which in turn is keeping this recall’s numbers low.
