Subaru looking at $177m bill for safety recalls

Automaker now aims to reinspect nearly 400,000 vehicles

TOKYO -- Subaru expects to spend 20 billion yen ($177 million) on recalls of vehicles inspected by uncertified personnel, the automaker said Thursday, doubling the initial projection after expanding the criteria and offering cash incentives for swift customer action.

The Japanese carmaker filed for the recall with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism that day. It starts notifying customers Friday in hopes of wrapping up the work within a year. A 50,000 yen incentive will also be provided for every car brought in for a regular checkup and the recall inspection at the same time.
