Subaru and Toyota to recall more than 400,000 vehicles
The Subaru Corporation is officially recalling over 400,000 vehicles across the world to fix faulty engine parts responsible for stalling while driving. The Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 sport coupes are powered by the Subaru 2.0-liter engine which has the engine defect.
According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the engine valve springs of the vehicles could fracture.
Motor Image estimates a total of 530,000 vehicles worldwide are affected by these two recalls. The company is recalling cars made between January 2012 and September 2013. Toyota said it would contact affected USA owners by mail starting in December.
The affected vehicles included 101,153 cars of four models including the Impreza, produced domestically between January 2012 and September 2013, as well as 310,000 units overseas.
Subaru said 101,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in Japan. Subaru says abnormal noise is generated and engine malfunction occurs, and in the worst case, the engine may stop running. Subaru did not reveal the overseas models affected by the recall.
The repairs are likely to be costly with Subaru picking up the tab.
Subaru makes the BRZ, FR-S and GT86, which all share an engine with the Forester and the Impreza.
