"The brake fluid used in these vehicles may contain excess moisture, which may adversely affect the performance of the electronic stability control system," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "Poor performance of the electronic stability control system when it is activated may result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash."
There are no injuries or accidents linked to the recall, Subaru spokesman Michael McHale told Edmunds.
The affected vehicles were built on July 20, 2015.
Subaru dealers will perform antilock brake activation, then flush and replace brake fluid. Owners are expected to be notified sometime in May. They can contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783.
Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should be ready to schedule a service appointment with their Subaru dealer once they receive their official recall notice.
