Subaru of America is recalling 2,893 Legacy 4-Door and Outback vehicles because of potential transmission oil leaks that pose a fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall affects 2015 and 2016 model-year vehicles manufactured July 3-27 of this year. Transmission oil may leak from a deformed seal cap on the propeller shaft yoke, NHTSA said. If the transmission oil leaks onto the exhaust pipe, there is a possible risk of fire.

To correct the problem, Subaru dealers will replace the propeller shaft. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach Subaru at (800) 782-2783. Subaru’s number for this recall is WQU-56.
