Subaru issues two recalls to fix engine and info monitor

Subaru is taking another big hit as they will now recall over 400,000 vehicles globally, including USA models over a faulty valve spring in the FB 2.0-liter Boxer engine.

Marketwatch reports that the recall includes popular Subaru models, like the Forester SUV and the Impreza, in addition to the BRZ sports vehicle.

Those vehicles were made between 2012 and 2013, but Subaru hasn't said how many were sold in the U.S. You can go here to see if your Subaru Forester, XV Crosstrek, Impreza or BRZ vehicle is being recalled. So far, no injuries or crashes have been connected to the default, according to Subaru.

Motor Image customers across the region, including in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, will be notified about this recall.

The problem in some of the engines affects the valve springs, and can cause the valve to fracture and break, possibly falling into the combustion chamber, leading to massive engine damage.

This could result in an unusual noise coming from the engine, engine stalling and engine failing to restart. It admitted Thursday that the main reason for the revision was the latest recall.

Toyota said its vehicles account for around 80,000 of the total.

Separately, Subaru has also announced a recall of the 2018 Legacy and Outback - made before Aug 1, 2018 - to fix "potential issues with multi-information displays".

NHTSA has not posted related communications or notices yet to its safercar.gov website.
