Subaru has announced today that it is recalling three of its car models because of problems with the brakes.
Nearly 32,000 of the 2012 Legacy, Outback and Impreza models are being recalled as a defective brake part could cause the brake pedal to travel farther than expected. Federal safety regulators say this could cause a driver to misjudge that amount of pressure needed to stop quickly.
Subaru says no crashes or injuries have happened because of the defect. The company has received 112 reports of the problem, mostly through its dealer network. Only about 3,000 of the cars were sold, and the rest are either on dealer lots or en route to dealers. Subaru says that they will be fixed before being sold, the company said.
Subaru customers will be instructed to take their cars to dealers for an inspection, with the recalls to begin this month.
The recall does not include WRX/STI models of the Impreza.
