Steering column could fail.

The Problem: The Subaru Legacy and Subaru Outback use a two-piece steering column that has one splined shaft inside another. The two shafts are supposed to be pressed together at the factory, but Subaru discovered that not enough force was used. That could allow the two shafts to separate, preventing the driver from steering the car. Subaru has received at least two customer complaints about this problem.

The Fix: Subaru will replace the steering column assembly for free in a recall that starts immediately.

Number Of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 5379 2013 Subaru Legacy and 2013 Subaru Outback models built between February 2012 and June 2012.
