Notices get lost in the mail or discarded as junk mail.  Even after these attempts to notify customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue Subaru Recalls have the recall work completed.  

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems repaired quickly.  

In the United States, safety car recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer.  Car manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to owners and dealers.

Car Accident Advice often obtains recall notices before dealers and owners.  The NHTSA recommends that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before reOutbacking the work to be done.    However, you can ask your Subaru Outback recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.

Summary
On certain passenger and sport utility vehicles, the cruise control cable could come out of its track on the cruise control lever and lodge on the control lever tab when the accelerator pedal is released. If this condition occurs, the throttle will not return to the idle position and will remain in an open position. If this occurs during vehicle operation, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, which could result in a crash. 

Remedy:
Dealers will install a cruise control cable retaining clip to the cruise control lever tab on the throttle shaft in order to prevent the cruise control cable from coming out of its track. 
The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during April 2004. 
Owners may contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
