Subaru Recalls More Than 400,000 Impreza, Crosstrek Models

 Thursday, October 31, 2019

Subaru is recalling more than 400,000 Impreza and Crosstrek models that may short circuit or unexpectedly lose power while driving.

The auto manufacturer announced the two recalls this week. The first affects 466,000 Imprezas built from 2017-2019, as well as 2018-2019 Crosstreks.

Subaru said the vehicles’ ignition coil could be energized longer than designed after the engine is shut off, causing a short circuit and blown fuse.

The second recall covers 205,000 Imprezas from 2017-2019, and 2018 Crosstreks.

A positive crankcase ventilation valve may come apart, allowing debris to enter the engine. The issue could result in a loss of power while driving, leading to an increased risk of crash.
