 Subaru  has released a notice to owners of their Outback, Crosstrek, and Legacy models that the vehicles' Eyesight Driver Assist System is now a safety hazard due to a "brake lamp switch failure."  Eyesight is a safety device that is supposed to warn the driver of an imminent frontal collision and automatically stop the vehicle. In light of this safety defect, the driver will now have to "manually apply the brake pedal,"  according to the notice.  Does _manually_  now also mean performed by the foot?
