Subaru—2007MY to certain 2009MY Tribeca

What are the defects?

FHI (Subaru Japan) have determined that the front lateral link in the rear suspension of 07MY, 08MY and certain 09MY Tribeca vehicles may crack and if left unchecked could, in time, break. There is a safety risk associated with this condition. If the lateral link were to break the rear suspension would experience lack of "toe" control and the driver may consequently lose control of the vehicle.
