Subaru Recalls Electronic Parking Brake That Might Not Engage

Subaru is recalling 27,000 model year 2010-2014 Legacy and Outback vehicles because the electronic parking brake might not engage. All the recalled cars have manual transmissions.

Subaru found a capacitor on the circuit board and/or the actuator stroke sensor magnetic ring located in the control unit of electronic parking brake may crack over time.

Anyone else remember when parking brakes weren’t fancy and just worked? Those were good times.
