This really isn't that big of a deal, but still some good FYI:

Subaru Recalls 2005 Legacy and Outback Sedans

The Daily Auto Insider
Monday, June 7, 2004
June 2004

Subaru announced a recall of 2005 Legacy Sedan and Outback Sedan models to address a side curtain airbag problem.

This recall involves all 2005 model-year Subaru Legacy Sedan and Outback Sedan models. The affected vehicles were produced at Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. between October 2, 2003 and June 1, 2004. While approximately 1,960 vehicles are affected, only 130 vehicles have been retailed, the company said in a news release.

The affected vehicles comply with the current side impact requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 201P and 214D. However, the newly designed side curtain airbags on the affected vehicles were not built to proper Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. specifications, which provide added occupant head protection, and therefore may not offer proper head protection in side impact crashes. There have been no accidents or injuries attributed to this problem.

In early June, Subaru said it will notify all owners of the 130 retailed vehicles by telephone and by mail to return their vehicles to a Subaru dealer for installation of new side curtain airbags at no charge to the owner.
So there is no real problem, its just that Subaru is looking out for its quality image and the greatest safety it can provide to its customers :D
