Subaru of America announced Friday (8/12/00) the voluntary recall of certain 2001 Subaru Legacy vehicles, Associated press said.

The recall involves the inspection of fuel hoses, rear centre seat belts and right front wheel bearing housings on some models, including the Legacy L, GT and Outback.

The company said layers on the fuel hose may separate, causing it to leak. The hose recall affects 1,456 vehicles.

Subaru will check 1,977 cars to check for a casting flaw in the right front bearing housing that could lead to loss of vehicle control.

The company will also inspect 368 Legacy sedan vehicles with beige interiors to replace the rear-centre seat belt, which may not extend to the full length.

The problems were found during quality-assurance testing, the company said.
