Subaru Australia is recalling vehicles for a problem with the parking brake. The Subaru brake recall impacts more than 40,000 vehicles.

Impacted by the Subaru brake recall are 2010-2014 models of Liberty and Outback. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission states, “If the electronic parking brake (EPB) circuit board fractures, the warning light will illuminate and the EPB cannot be applied or released.”

According to Subaru, “The EPB Actuator may become faulty creating a situation where the EPB cannot be applied.  If the EPB cannot be applied/released, the vehicle is in breach of the Australian Design Rules (ADRs) for motor vehicles.”
