Subaru of America issued a recall of their 2012 Impreza, Outback, and Legacy vehicles today. Currently, only about 3,000 of the vehicles have been bought.
The car manufacturer stopped the sale of these vehicles on November 25. “Some customers said the brakes didn’t feel right. The pedal travels farther than it should,” said a spokesperson for Subaru. Subaru received 130 complaints from drivers concerning the recalled vehicles’ brake pedal.
Officials found that the brake pedal in the recalled vehicles travel too far. While no accidents have been reported involving the brake pedal defect, the problem could potentially put drivers of these vehicles at a greater risk of being in an accident.

Yesterday, Chrysler Group LLC and Dodge announced the recall of around 280,000 Ram pickup trucks. The recalled vehicles were manufactured and sold between 2003 and 2011.
According to the car manufacturer, the left, front steering assemblies on 1500, 2500, and 3500 model Ram pickup trucks are defective. The tie rod ball stud in the assemblies were found to have a tendency to break easily when performing “high-stress maneuvers.”
If this part of the vehicle breaks, the left front wheel will lose some directional stability and increase the chance of an accident.
Chrysler has received reports of multiple accidents caused by the defect and at least 1 injury.
