TOKYO -- Subaru of America stopped the sale of 2012 Impreza, Legacy and Outback models on Friday, Nov. 25, following customer complaints about increased brake pedal travel.

Parent company Fuji Heavy Industries says it is recalling around 3,000 cars already sold and delivered. The company received about 130 reports of the faulty brakes and confirmed the problem on three vehicles.

The company says the brakes work.

"Some customers said the brakes didn't feel right," said Subaru of America spokesman Michael McHale. "The pedal travels farther than it should. There were no failure issues, no accidents."
