Subaru Recalls Legacy, Outback, Tribeca Vehicles with Transmission Defect
Subaru of America is recalling certain model year 2014 Legacy 3.6R, Outback 3.6R, and 2013 Tribeca vehicles equipped with 5-speed automatic transmissions.
In the affected vehicles, the parking rod may come loose inside the automatic transmission.
As a result of the parking rod detaching, the transmission may not be able to be moved from the 'park' position preventing the vehicle from being moved or driven. Furthermore, even with the transmission shifted into the 'park' position, the parking mechanism may not engage, and the vehicle may roll away while in the 'park' position, increasing the risk of a crash.
Subaru will notify the owners of all affected vehicles, and dealers will replace the transmission free of charge.
