Subaru of America reported at the end of May that due to issues with Takata-produced airbag inflators, additional recalls of their products would need to be made.
This announcement will serve as support measures for a revised agreement between the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Takataâ€™s US subsidiary company regarding recalls of airbags on the American market.
The revised agreement comprises a decision to include other airbags that were not originally within the scope of the initial recall which originally accounted for front seat airbags that had no phase stabilized ammonium nitrate drying agent.
At this juncture, Subaru of America announced that they would be making additional recalls in the wake of the revised agreement, adding an additional 400,000 units sold by the company to their recall targets.
The models in question are the 2003 to 2004 as well as the 2009 to 2011 models of the Legacy, Outback, the 2009 to 2011 models of the Forrester, and the 2006 to 2011 models of the Impreza and Tribeca.
