Thousands Of Subaru Headed To The Scrap Heap Due To Welding Fail

By

Japanese automaker Subaru has recalled over 2,000 sedans and SUVs after they discovered faulty welds that could lead to an accident and/or increase the risk of injuries to vehicle occupants.

The faulty welds are the result of a supplier who failed to properly clean part of its machinery.  Two sheet metal components used in the cowl, which separates the engine from the passenger compartment, in the Legacy and Outback models could fail over time.

Subaru plans to recall 142 of the Legacy sedans and 1,965 Outback SUVs. According to Subaru, the majority of those models had yet to be delivered, but at least 20 are currently in the hands of U.S. buyers.

If you own one of these 20 vehicles, you will be given the option of having the vehicle replaced or having it repurchased by Subaru.

All the vehicles are unrepairable and will be scrapped.
