Recall: Over 400K 2017-19 Subaru Imprezas and 2018-19 Crosstreks recalled for computer problem
Subaru also recalls 200,000 Impreza and Crosstreks over a faulty PCV valve
In a statement to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Subaru of America said it is issuing two recalls covering more than 400,000 cars. The first recall is for 2017-2019 Imprezas and 2018 and 2019 Crosstreks. Subuaru said power could stay on after the ignition is turned off resulting in a blown fuse/short circuit. Subaru will update the affected vehicles’ software and replace ignition coil packs as necessary.
Recall No. 2 covers 2017-2019 Imprezas and 2018 Crosstreks. According to Subaru the car’s PCV valve could come apart, allowing debris to fall into the engine. Subaru plans to replace the valve on affected cars if the valve is still in one piece, but some unlucky owners will have to have an engine replaced if debris has entered the engine and caused damage. Of course, Subaru will replace either the PCV valve or the engine, free of charge.
In the letter to NHTSA, Subaru said it would like to start the recalls Dec. 13 and is notifying owners if their cars need inspecting. Subaru says there are no reported incidents.
