About 48,500 2016 and 2017 Subaru Legacy and Outback vehicles have been recalled by the automaker. The recall is the result of a steering-system defect that is thought to be so dangerous that owners are being urged not to drive these vehicles.
In the sedans and crossovers affected by the recall, the steering column was not built according to standards. As a result, moving the steering wheel may not cause the tires to move as intended. Because this condition can result in a driver having little to no control over their vehicle, Subaru is offering to tow the recalled cars to the nearest dealership free of charge. It is not recommend that owners drive the vehicles to the dealership themselves.
