Post MY 2000 Legacy and Outback owners - FYI

Earlier this year Subaru notified the US government that there was a screw up with the headlights installed on 87 of the Legacys and Outbacks manufacturered from 10/5/99 through 12/5/99. On some cars, they mounted headlight lenses intended for two bulbs on one-bulb headlight assemblies. On other cars, they mounted headlight lenses intended for one bulb on two-bulb headlight assemblies. In the first case, the result is a slight decrease in long range visibility, but within FMVSS performance requirements. In the second case, the result is a slight broadening of the beam pattern.

Last month, on April 6, 2001, the US government decided that Subaru didn't have to correct this problem and didn't have to notify the affected owners about it. Here's the decision announcement from Federal Register: http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-...d=fr06ap01-130

I, on the other hand, think you should know and, if you are affected, think you should be able to get it corrected by Subaru for free.
