No injuries or accidents have been reported, according to Subaru. The problem was discovered during internal testing.
Subaru said any vehicles where leaks are found will have their brake lines replaced. If no leak is found in a vehicle, an anti-corrosion wax will be applied.
Affected cars were sold or are registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. Subaru said it sold more than 400,000 Legacy and Outback vehicles from 2005 to 2009 but only 200,000 are expected to be affected by the recall.
