Subaru Recalls 875,000 vehicles Due to Potential Safety Risk

Subaru recalls approximately 875,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to engine and suspension issues, increasing the risk of crash or injury.

Subaru has issued two different recalls for the two notable issues. 

The first recall includes the 466,000 Crosstrek SUVs from 2018 and 2019 and Impreza cars.

According to Subaru, a computer can power the ignition coil even when the car is not running which can then cause a short circuit.

To address the issue, Subaru will update the software, replace ignition coils and install a new front exhaust pipe, if deemed necessary. 

The recall for this issue is expected to begin on May 28.

While the second recall includes 408,000 2018 and 2019 Crosstreks and 2019 Foresters. 

For these recalled vehicles, Subaru has reported that the rear stabilizer bar bolts can loosen and detach which then increases the risk of a crash. 

The recall will begin on May 14, where dealers will tighten bolts replace any missing ones, free of charge.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
