More than 450,000 Subaru Crosstrek And Impreza Recalled For Engine-Related Issues

Two unrelated engine issues are forcing recalls on more than 400,000 Subaru Impreza and Crosstrek

The Subaru Crosstrek, a very popular compact crossover, based entirely on the far less appreciated Subaru Impreza, are both being recalled for a pair of engine-related problems. In the past, Subaru’s Boxer horizontally-opposed engines have had their fair share engine troubles because of their configuration. These two bugs are not related to this.

One of the recalls involves a faulty engine computer which continues to power the ignition coil even after the motor is shut off. A total of 466,000 2018 and 2019 Crosstrek and Imprezas from 2017 to 2019 are included in the recall. The fix is fairly simple where the ECU’s software will be updated and other related fixes, such as replacing the front exhaust pipes, will be done at the same time.

The other seems a little more serious. The aluminum positive crankcase ventilation valves can fall apart creating a possibility where parts of the valve, or valves, may fall into the crankcase. The 205,000 2017-2019 Imprezas and 2018 Crosstreks will be inspected and valves will be replaced if needed. In the event that a valve is found to be broken and pieces not readily found in the engine, the latter will be replaced.

The recalls will come into effect on December 13th and owners of affected cars will be contacted by Subaru.
