Subaru, GM Recall Expands

Subaru has submitted paperwork to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regarding an Impreza recall to replace faulty Takata airbag inflators, and the final tally is 81,100 units built between January 28, 2003 and May 31, 2005, Autoblog reports. Earlier this month, Subaru had projected 78,000 Imprezas would be recalled from the 2004 and 2005 model years, but that final number also includes the Saab 9-2x; that Saab model, nicknamed the "Saabaru," was a badge-engineered Impreza Wagon that General Motors began selling in 2004. Affected Saab models were built from February 11, 2004 to March 17, 2005.
This recall specifically affects passenger-side inflators, and Subaru will notify owners that they can take their cars to the dealer for a free repair. The recall does not officially begin, however, until July 17, 2015. The notice from the NHTSA below has more information.
In addition to the Subaru recall, General Motors has announced a recall of 330,198 fullsize pickups in the US in the aftermath of the announcement made on May 19 that doubled the number of vehicles being called in to replace Takata's defective airbag inflators. That announcement expanded the nationwide recall to an estimated 33.8 million vehicles in the US.
Heavy Duty versions of the 2007 and 2008 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are included in GM's move, for the purpose of replacing the passenger airbag inflators. The announcement made by the American National Highway Traffic Safety Association cited long-term exposure to moisture as a possible cause of the inflator issues.
GM says it is not aware of any problems with the recalled pickups due to moisture, nor has it had any reports of crashes, injuries, or fatalities, and has not received any complaints.
