Subaru Recalls Mo 165,000 Cars, SUVs to Fix Stalling Engines

Subaru is recalling certain vehicles because a fuel pump may fail, causing the engine to suddenly stall. If this happens while the vehicle is in motion, it could cause a crash. The models involved are 2019-2020 Ascent SUVs, 2018 Forester SUVs, 2018-2020 Impreza hatchbacks and sedans, 2018-2020 Legacy sedans, 2018-2020 Outback SUVs, 2018-2019 WRX sedans, and 2018-2019 BRZ coupes.

Before a stall occurs, drivers may notice that the engine runs rough—shaking or making unusually loud noises—or see the check engine light illuminated on the dashboard. In some cases, the vehicle may not start. A Subaru spokesman told CR that there have been no crashes or injuries related to this recall.

This is the second recall related to fuel pumps on Subaru vehicles. The 2018-2019 Toyota 86 coupe, which shares components with the Subaru BRZ, is also included in this recall. In addition, Honda recently issued two similar recalls for vehicles with fuel pumps from the same manufacturer.
