Subaru Recall WWQ-01: Subaru/Cruise Control Cable

2004 Subaru Impreza

If this occurs during vehicle operation, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, which could result in a crash.

Vehicle Speed Control — Cables

Summary
On certain passenger sedans, wagons, and sport utility vehicles, the cruise control cable could come out of its track on the cruise control lever and lodge on the control lever tab when the accelerator pedal is released. If this condition occurs, the throttle will not return to the idle position and will remain in an open position.
Actions
Dealers will install a cruise control cable retaining clip to the cruise control lever tab on the throttle shaft in order to prevent the cruise control cable from coming out of its track. Owner notification began on April 12, 2004. Owners should contact Subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
