Subaru issues recalls on 400,000 vehicles

Subaru has issued recalls affecting about 400,000 of its vehicles.

The issue is two problems that could cause the vehicles to stall. The largest of the recalls affects 229,000 Outback and Legacy vehicles from the 2018 model year.

A software problem can keep the “low fuel” warning light from coming on and make the “miles to empty” display inaccurately.  That could cause the cars to run out of gas and stall, increasing the crash risk.

Owners will be notified this month. To this point, government documents don’t list any crashes or injuries caused by the problem.

The other recall involves the engine valve springs that could fracture in about 166, 000 vehicles, also potentially causing them to stall. That recall covers the 2012 to 2014 models of the Impreza, the 2013 models of the BRZ, XV Crosstrek and the Toyota Scion FR-S (Toyota and Subaru jointly designed that vehicle).
