Subaru—Impreza, Forester, Liberty and Outback Model Vehicles

What are the defects?

The Parking Pawl mechanism may fail to restrain the vehicle when parked if the handbrake is not correctly applied. If an affected vehicle is restrained in a parking situation by the parking pawl mechanism only, the vehicle may roll away creating an unsafe situation.

What should consumers do?

Owners will be contacted by mail. For further information contact Subaru free Customer Helpline on 1800 226 643. Please ensure you ALWAYS engage the handbrake when you place the transmission selector in the Park position, especially until your vehicle is repaired.
