SUBARU AUSTRALIA has confirmed that it has issued a recall for its 2010 Liberty and 2010 Outback models equipped with the company's CVT automatic transmission.

A statement from Subaru parent company Fuji Heavy Industries says that the affected vehicles "may experience an oil leak from a faulty cooler hose." If the leak is not remedied, the vehicle will come to a stop.

Speaking with TMR today, David Rowley, National Corporate Affairs Manager for Subaru Australia confirmed the details of the recall.

"We can confirm that a recall has been issued on 2288 cars across the Liberty and Outback ranges, specifically those fitted with the CVT transmission," Mr Rowley said.

"It basically involves an inspection and where necessary, replacement of an oil hose. Subaru Australia is writing to affected customers at the moment."

The recall has been issued both here in Australia and internationally, with over 29,000 Outback and Liberty cars affected in the US market.

In Australia, only two vehicles have been confirmed to have been affected so far, with no injuries or incidents reported.
