So, more news on it is that it's a supplier issue, not a Subaru issue. If it really is a supplier issue, then Subaru may be able to skirt this one.

Also, due to where they are, these cars are going to the scrapper and not back on the road.

The problem was discovered within a week, limiting the extent of the problem, nonetheless, the automaker plans to recall 142 of the Legacy sedans and 1,965 of the Outback SUVs. According to Subaru, the majority of those models had yet to be delivered, but at least 20 are currently in the hands of U.S. buyers.
Sure, the initial headline of the number of cars was "oh crap", but when you find out only 20 made it into customers hands... that's not THAT bad as far as a recall goes.

Thing is, I think the supplier being on the hook for the failure is going to be tapping their insurance for this one as they may have to foot the bill for the cars. What I'm curious about now is, how did they find it?
