... the great Subaru ear wax recall:
Subaru Recalls Roughly 200,000 Vehicles for Brake Line Corrosion
Subaru execs caught red-handed, selling-out the most loyal customer following in the history of the auto industry, choose to affect repair to substandard brake lining they previously cut cost on, not by upgrading the brake lining to corrosion proof alloy, but instead, by dabbing a little wax, only in states where roads are salted during wintertime.
In states where they don't salt roads, feel free to continue driving your Subaru equipped with the cheap, shoddy hydraulic brake lining they never told you about.
Pretty inflammatory rhetoric there asjoseph. When I read the story linked in the post, it seemed like MotorTrend was treating it a lot more lightly than the OP. No mention of any execs being caught red-handed or selling out loyal customers with some scam sub-standard repair. Unlike the OP, MotorTrend reported it like any one of dozens of recalls announced by every auto maker every month.
To quote the article, "The Fix: Subaru
will notify owners and will repair the brake line system free of charge at dealerships. An anti-corrosion wax on the four-way joint connector area of the brake line should fix the problem." OMG! They found an inexpensive less time consuming effective method to avoid getting rust on some portion of the vehicle!
Um, I will continue to drive my Subaru OUTBACK because it must not be equipped with the cheap, shoddy hydraulic brake lining they never told me about. Because it is not one of the vehicles covered by this routine recall. It was covered when my dashboard melted while the car was owned in FL. Subaru replaced the dash along with thousands of others well past the warranty because they stand by their products. My 2000 Outback had a recall for corrosion on some rear suspension components. They cleaned and sprayed the bits with anti-corrosion paint and my car is still driving without the rear suspension rusted through at over 225K miles. I'm sure their brake line repair will suffice as well.
In fact, the only vehicle I had brake line trouble with, was my 2003 Chevy Suburban. Lines rusted through in several places and nearly caused an accident with my entire family in the car. Unfortunately, Chevrolet did not have a recall before that near tragedy. Good thing Subaru is on top of this one.
Why is this even on an Outback site? BTW, the email is working fine for me. Maybe their site was down when you were trying to contact them about this "conspiracy."
