    Takata air bag recall

    This one is a biggie. Info is still being released but Subaru is already on the list:

    http://www.nhtsa.gov/About+NHTSA/Pre...mediate-action

    Subaru: 17,516 total number of potentially affected vehicles
    2003 2005 Baja
    2003 2005 Legacy
    2003 2005 Outback
    2004 2005 Impreza
    As of now the safercar.gov VIN lookup tool is broken. But I'm sure it'll be a while before dealerships have parts and stuff ready, anyway.

    Be sure to use the VIN lookup to check recall status:

    I called LSS because my car falls in line with the Imprezas listed, but the VIN lookup returned nothing. Terry said the VIN lookup is what they use as the determining factor.

    Well, they've done an about face on my car's status. I got a letter in the mail last night that my front passenger airbag needs to be replaced. It said they are collecting parts and will send another letter when I'll be able to schedule the work to be done.

    we remove the passenger front airbag assembly and replace the airbag inflator.
