Subaru Australia is recalling 78,617 examples of its Liberty, Outback, Levorg, WRX, Impreza, and XV as they could roll away when parked, due to an issue with an adaptor cord connector for the electronic park brake.

This recall affects Liberty, Outback, Levorg, and WRX vehicles with model years between 2015 and 2018, as well as Impreza and XV vehicles with model years between 2017 and 2019. All of these cars were produced between 2015 and 2018.

“Due to a manufacturing issue, the Electronic Park Brake (EPB) adaptor cord connector may not operate as intended,” the company says in its recall notice.
