My goodness, is this the first step toward a James Bond ejection seat? Apparently Subaru has figured out how to make the moonroof fly off suddenly. I wonder if they’re working now on the ejection mechanism?
Cars reports, “Subaru is recalling just 14 model-year 2012 Outback wagons and Legacy sedans due to a problem with the moonroof glass that could cause it to detach, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.” Cars notes that “an inadequate amount and position of adhesive between the glass and retainer of the moonroof could cause the glass to loosen and detach while driving, creating a potential road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash, according to NHTSA. Subaru has already notified affected owners, and dealers will inspect the condition of the glass adhesion and either apply additional adhesive or replace the moonroof glass for free, according to NHTSA.”
