Subaru Recalls Vehicles That Could Stall Out While Driving

Subaru recently announced a new recall that affects close to 200,000 vehicles.

Subaru’s latest recall should make owners take note. The recall regards the low-pressure fuel pump, which, if faulty, could fail and cause engines to stall while driving.

“If the low pressure fuel pump fails, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash,” reported the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The recall affects 188,207 vehicles in these models, manufactured in 2019: Subaru Imprezas, Ascents, Crosstreks, and Outbacks.

“If the low pressure fuel pump becomes inoperative, the check engine warning light or malfunction indicator light may illuminate,” reported Subaru.
