Subaru is recalling certain model year 2012 Impreza sedans and wagons (except WRX/sti models), manufactured from April 21, 2011, through November 15, 2011, and legacy and outback vehicles manufactured from October 17, 2011, through November 23, 2011. These vehicles may be equipped with a brake master cylinder that could malfunction and cause an increase in the amount of brake pedal travel distance required to slow or stop the vehicle.
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake master cylinder and if necessary, replace it, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during December 2011. Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
