Subaru Legacy owners have reported 18 problems related to air bag (under the air bag category).
Taka recall. Received recall notice in February. No further communication. Called local Subaru dealer. They have no idea when parts will be in. Called the phone number on the notice (800-782-2783). No option at all to speak with anyone. Called auto safety hotline. The rep tried calling the same number and had the same results. The rep gave me the phone number of office of traffic safety, region 8, 303-757-9381. Busy signal for hours. Someone needs to take responsibility for t his safety hazard. I'm surprised that Subaru is not communicating, and actually blocked communication about the issue. I'm getting nowhere, and in the meantime my car could be a death trap.

Takata recall I contacted not one, but all of my local Subaru dealers in the first week of January to find out which had the shortest wait time for the recall, which they told me was 2 weeks. When I called back 3 weeks later, they told me it was backordered and "don't call us, we'll call you. " it is now 5 weeks after that, I've been told by Subaru that there's no date for when the parts will be in, and my car is unsafe to drive. I have a job; if I can't drive my car, then I need a rental provided to me in the mean time, free of charge. Leaving people for an indeterminate period of time with an unsafe vehicle and no alternative is unconscionable.

On 11/18/13, at approximately 5:15 pm, I was heading down a street to make a left to go home from work. All of a sudden the car accelerated and would not slow down after I pushed down on the brake with my right foot. I immediately began to turn the wheel to the right onto an empty street to avoid two other cars at the intersection who were going to make the same left I originally wanted to make. For some reason, the car did not go all the way right and went diagonally from the intersection across the street. The car then jumped a curb hitting an electrical pole. At that point, I was pulled out of the car by another driver who saw the incident because when hitting the pole, live wires were dangling from the pole. I was taken across the street away from the car and waited for police and paramedics to come.

Air bag problem light is on constantly whenever it's cool and humid, or cold outside. I've scanned for trouble codes, but no codes are present. A non-Subaru garage did troubleshooting but was unable to find any cause. Given other complaints, I'm distressed that this is a pervasive issue with the potential for serious injury or death. Subaru needs to do the right thing and fix these issues before anyone loses their lives.
Hello in March 2007 while driving back from boston,MA I was 14 miles from home when a car came around a corner in my lane I looked to my right and there was a telephone pole, so I had to go in to his lane I thought I had it made but we clipped back bumpers so I had slam on the brakes and when I did the car seemed to go faster and now with recall I wonder if my brakes weren't working. Also none (zero) of the 6 air bags deployed and I thought that was odd and the seatbelt gave me all my injuries broken ribs,thumb and a burst fracture of my l2 vertabrae. The last injury was crushed lt foot from the tire and alloy she'll came through the fire wall the other factor was the dealership were I bought my car was trying to find another car for my car because it had so many problems I contacted soa talked many times to john mergan and the most they would do was give me an extra $500. 00 if I bought a new Subaru.
My 1996 Subaru outback experienced an air bag malfunction on 6/14/2005. While driving down our local highway at 55 mph the vehicle's air bag suddenly deployed. The sudden deployment caused the vehicle to stall. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but due to the mileage on the vehicle they refused to contact the manufacturer about repairs. The insurance inspector believes that the failure was due to a malfunction in the system because there was no damage to the front end of the vehicle to indicate a 55 mph crash.
While driving, the car will "percolate", or skip, and stall completely upon applying brake at stop light. Starting up again, it will skip and / or come to a dead stop after accellerating. Very dangerous. . . Happened a few months ago, sent to Subaru repair, where they changed the plugs and wires. It happened again yesterday, April 1, 2005. I will call for an appointment to have it repaired again at chase parkway Subaru in watertown, CT.
