Automaker Subaru recently issued a recall to more than 660,000 vehicles in at least 20 states across America due to a potential braking problem caused by corrosion, WQAD8 reported on July 3.
The recall affects 660,238 vehicles in 20 cold-weather states, including Iowa, that utilize salt on the roads during winter season to provide friction over ice. According to the automaker, the brake lining of some of their vehicle models, old and new, may corrode over time, and drivers may experience problems stopping their vehicles. A Subaru spokesperson stated that they were unaware of any accidents before the recall was issued. In a notice forwarded to the NHTSA, Subaru explained the brake fluid in the vehicles may leak if the linings were exposed to several winter seasons.
