Subaru Issues Massive 400,000 Vehicle Recall

Subaru Issues Massive 400,000 Vehicle Recall

Yesterday, Subaru released a statement to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration regarding nationwide recalls of over 400,000 Imprezas and Crosstreks. According to Subaru, there are two distinct recalls in effect, each of which relates to different vehicle safety issues.

The first recall applies to 2017 through 2019 Impreza models, as well as 2018 through 2019 Crosstrek models. A technical issue occurring within the engine can result in sustained power to the ignition even after the driver has shut down the engine. This could result in blown fuses and short circuits, both of which can be potentially serious issues.

The second recall affects 2017 through 2019 Impreza models and 2018 Crosstreks. According to documentation provided by Subaru, the Positive Crankcase Ventilation valves can fall apart and cause debris to fall inside of the engine. In severe scenarios, this debris could cause a power failure while driving. Severe accidents could result from this defect.

Subaru has announced that both of these recalls will begin on December 13th. The company has also made it clear that they will notify automobile owners affected by the recalls. Currently, there are no accidents which have been attributed to these problems.
