Subaru Recalls 875,000 Vehicles For Engine And Suspension Issues
Subaru has announced a recall for 875,000 vehicles for possible engine and suspension issues, according to NBC. There is a chance of an engine stall or a part falling out of the rear suspension.
The affected vehicles for the engine problem are Crosstrek SUVs, years 2018 and 2019, and Impreza cars from 2017-2019. Government investigations found that the ignition coil of these cars can power on after the car is shut off. This causes a short circuit that can damage the coil and cause a stall while driving. The recall states that dealers will replace the coils and update the engine software so it doesn’t happen. In some cases, the front exhaust pipe will also be replaced. This recall will start on May 28.
The suspension problem affects 2018-2019 Crosstreks and 2019 Foresters. The problem lies in a rear stabilizer bar bolt. These can loosen and detach, which will affect handling and raise the risk of an accident. This recall will start on May 14. Dealers will tighten the bolts to the new specifications and replace any missing ones.
