Subaru has issued a recall affecting over 13,000 vehicles in Canada because of a faulty fuel pump that could cause the engine to stall. 

Vehicles affected

This recall covers different models, 13,377 of which are affected in Canada, plus another 188,000 in the United States. 

  • 2019 Impreza (hatchbacks and sedans)
  • 2019 Outback
  • 2019 Legacy
  • 2019 Ascent SUV

What’s the problem?

If cracks form in the fuel pump, it could cause it to fail and reduce power, preventing the engine from starting or stall it while running. Subaru says there are warning signs that could potentially clue drivers in on the issue before the engine actually stalls. It may shake or make loud noises, and possibly trigger the Check Engine Light on the instrument cluster. The ignition may not even start the vehicle, in some cases. 

Subaru hasn’t reported any specific incidents or injuries related to the defect in these models. 

What’s the fix?

Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump with one that has been redesigned to address the issue. The repair will be done free of charge.

What do you do?

Subaru will begin notifying affected owners starting June 5 by mail with instructions on next steps.
