subaru recall accident personal injury

Subaru of America, Inc., recalled nearly 900,000 vehicles over safety issues. The two separate recalls impact several models. They include the 2017 through 2019 Impreza, 2018 and 2019 Crosstrek, and the 2019 Forester models. 

The firm stated that the first recall was prompted by an issue with the ignition coils, which could degrade and lead to stalls. The vehicles may also present an issue with the engine control module programming. At least 466,205 units were impacted. While the risk of accidents is low, Subaru said, they are conducting the recall to ensure consumer safety. 

The second recall covers 405,000 vehicles that come with rear stabilizer bracket bolts that must be examined for improper torque. Depending on how loose the bolts may become, they can interact with other components and case damage. 

So far, Subaru reported, no recall-related incidents or injuries were reported.
