Tribeca Safety Recall in 24 Countries, But Not in US or Canada
Details are in the document at: http://nhthqnwws112.odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/docservlet/Artemis/Public/Foreign%20C- - - - - - - - - ampaigns/2008/F-Campaigns/FRCL-08F087-2879.pdf
Subaru had to submit that document because of the TREAD Act, which was a response to the Ford/Firestone tire disaster in the 90s. During investigations, it was learned that Ford had quietly conducted a recall in some South American country for the problem and never told NHTSA about it. I think Ford's excuse was that the driving conditions down there were much different than in the US. Now automakers must notify NHTSA about their foreign recalls. This Tribeca safety defect recall seems eerily similar.
