Subaru of America Inc. is recalling an unknown number of Legacy, Outback, Impreza and Baja vehicles for problems with Takata Corp. airbags, which may explode during use. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Subaru is conducting the recall for certain model year 2003 to 2005 Legacy, Outback, and Baja vehicles, as well as 2004 to 2005 Impreza, and 2005 Saab 9-2X vehicles that are currently or have ever been registered in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand passenger side air bag inflators.
NHTSA said that frontal airbag inflators could rupture during deployment, releasing metal fragments that could seriously injure passengers. Subaru said in a letter to NHTSA that it has not made a determination that a safety defect exists in these vehicles and is not aware of any incidents involving ruptured inflators on the models that will be affected by this parts collection campaign.
