Subaru Recalls Vehicles With Moonroof Glass That Can Fly Away

Outback and Legacy models might have adhesive that wasn't applied correctly.

Posted in Recalls

— Subaru is recalling 14 model year 2012 Outback and Legacy vehicles because the moonroof glass may come loose and fly away from the vehicle.  The affected vehicles were manufactured from April 6, 2011, through May 12, 2011.

Subaru said the adhesive between the glass and retainer wasn’t applied adequately, not only in the amount but in the placement of the adhesive.

The moonroof glass could do serious damage to any vehicle behind you if the glass goes flying away.

Subaru dealers will inspect the glass and apply additional adhesive or replace the glass.

Owners should have already received the recall notice from Subaru, but you can call Subaru at 800-782-2783 and refer to recall number WVW-33.

Earlier today, Subaru said they were recalling 2012 Outback and Legacy vehicles because the windshield wiper motors could melt and catch fire.

Just over a week ago, Subaru recalled 2010-2013 Legacy and Outback, 2012-2013 Impreza,  and 2013 XV Crosstrek vehicles because the remote engine starter key fob could actually drain your gas tank.
