 Description of the problemThe brake light came on two days prior. Checked fluid and was a bit low. I hadn't noticed and fluids under car so did not give it a second thought. I was driving on sunday and had loss of pedal and the brake light came on and i nursed it home. I added fluid and pumped pedal in driveway. The pedal went to floor. I pulled it up on the internet and found some subaru vehicles same age had brake line issues that were involved in a recall. I to a local shop and the service manger told me it would be very expensive. I contacted subaru and that as a goodwill gesture that they would credit $500 toward the $1850 bill which i thought was gracious. The dealer said the recall did not include the brake lines, but it did. I don't want to jeopardize what they are going to do for me, but could of been a scary event. I purchased the car new in michigan and took it to north carolina. I do believe that this problem is related to your brake line recall and should be expanded to previous years. Thanks
