Subaru will be contacting owners of certain 2017 Subaru Outback vehicles regarding a problem affecting brakes and suspension. According to the defect report, the bolts used to attach the front brake calipers, wheel hubs and the right stabilizer clamp may not have been sufficiently tightened. Drivers will be alerted to a problem by a rattling or clunking sound from the front wheel area, especially when brakes are applied. If the attaching bolts loosen or detach, the related components would also become loose and could possibly detach. The vehicle may become unstable and/or no longer provide sufficient braking capability.

Those receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealers to have the bolts inspected for proper torque and replace any loose bolts as necessary. Owners wanting more information are asked to contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783. Subaru’s number for this recall is WTE-66 and the NHTSA campaign number is 16V-576.
