2017 Subaru Outback Recalled to Fix Loose Bolts

WASHINGTON Subaru of America is recalling 99 2017 Subaru Outback vehicles to fix loose bolts, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The affected vehicles may have improperly tightened attaching bolts for the front left and right brake calipers, wheel hubs and the right stabilizer clamp," the NHTSA said in its recall summary. "If any of the bolts loosen or detach, the related components would also become loose and may detach, possibly making the vehicle unstable and reducing the braking capability.

"These conditions would increase the risk of a crash."

A stop-sale order is in place on the affected vehicles.

They were built from June 20, 2016, to June 23, 2016.

No injuries or accidents are linked to the recall, Subaru spokesman Michael McHale told Edmunds.

Subaru dealers will inspect the bolts for proper torque and replace any loose bolts. The recall has started. Owners can contact Subaru customer service at 1-800-782-2783.

Edmunds says: It's time to make a service appointment with your Subaru dealer if you own one of these vehicles.
