Recall for 2010 Legacy and Outback with CVT
Just in case we may have a few members here with one.
Subject: Subaru Recall WVQ-27
2010 Legacy/Outback CVT Transmission Fluid Cooler Inlet Hose
Subaru of America, Inc. has initiated a voluntary Safety Recall to inspect and possibly replace the
transmission fluid cooler inlet hose on approximately 29,433 2010 Legacy and Outback models
equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) produced between July 31, 2009 and
December 1, 2009. The affected VIN range is as follows:
2010 Legacy A3215537 through A3227670
2010 Outback A3317662 through A3346480
Campaign code WVQ-27 has been assigned to this Safety Recall.

near the lower portion of the radiator) that was improperly formed during the manufacturing
process. As a result, a section of the hose could unexpectedly split allowing transmission fluid to
There is a potential safety risk associated with this condition. If an improperly formed hose were
to split and leak transmission fluid, transfer of engine power to the wheels will begin to diminish,
leading to vehicle power loss. This could happen without prior warning.
This recall will involve checking the “lot number” found on the transmission fluid cooler inlet hose.
If the “lot number” is one of a specific group, the hose must be replaced with a new one. If the “lot
number” is not within the group, the hose was manufactured to specifications and replacement is
Today, Subaru issued a Stop Sale notice to dealers for all vehicles in inventory affected by this
recall. Dealers are being sent a list of affected vehicles in their inventory or in transit by their
Region / Distributor Sales Office. As a reminder, all vehicles in dealer inventory affected by this
recall must be inspected and, if necessary, repaired before the vehicle can be placed in service or
retailed. Vehicle coverage can be confirmed by performing a vehicle coverage inquiry through
Subarunet beginning 5/13/10.
Please do NOT go into your dealer and try to get this done. The parts will not be available for another 2-3 weeks.
