    Recalls for 2001 Subaru

    2001 SUBARU LEGACY
    NHTSA Campaign ID:POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
    Manufacturer:SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC.
    Manufacture Dates:06/01/2001 - 09/30/2002
    Potential Units Affected:172564

    Defect Description:

    CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY AND PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS WERE PRODUCED WITH AN IMPROPERLY MANUFACTURED TRANSMISSION PARKING ROD.
