Subaru stops sales of three 2012 models

Subaru stops sales of three 2012 models

By staff and wire report

Customer complaints of faulty brakes have forced Subaru of America to postpone the sales of three of its 2012 models: Impreza, Legacy and the popular Outback. 

So far, 3,000 cars have been sold and have been recalled. All dealerships stopped selling the vehicles on Nov. 25, Autoweek reported today. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had received about 130 complaints about the problem. 

"Some customers said the brakes didn't feel right," Subaru of America spokesman Michael McHale said. "The pedal travels farther than it should. There were no failure issues, no accidents." 

All dealerships will receive new master cylinders to fix the braking issues, according to McHale. The stop-sale is expected to be resolved in a matter of days, possibly early next week, Autoweek reported.
