Subaru Issues Two Recalls for 645,000 Vehicles for Stalling Problems

Subaru is recalling approximately 645,000 vehicles worldwide in two recalls to fix problems that can cause them to stall.  About 229,000 model year 2018 Outbacks and Legacies are being recalled in the United State for a software problem that can stop the low-fuel warning light from illuminating and make the miles-to-empty display inaccurate.  The problem can cause drivers to run out of fuel and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.  In the other recall, about 411,000 model year 2012-2014 Imprezas and 2013 BRZ, XV Crosstrek and Toyota Scion FR-S are being recalled because the engine valve springs can fracture, causing the engines to malfunction or stall.  Toyota and Subaru jointly designed the FR-S sports car.

In both recalls, owners will be notified starting in December.  In the fuel indicator recall, dealers will reprogram the software. If reprogramming tools aren’t ready, owners will be notified by letter again when they are.  In the valve spring recall, dealers will replace the springs.  If parts aren’t ready, owners will be notified a second time of when they should take vehicles in for repairs.
