Subaru Recalls Thousands of Vehicles in Fort Collins, Loveland
Subaru is recalling more than 400,000 vehicles nationwide due to computer problems and engine debris according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The first recall is covers 466,000 Subaru Impreza cars made from 2017 to 2019 and includes 2018 and 2019 Crosstrek models. Subaru claims that the vehicles can continue to "power the ignition coil" after the engine has been shut off. That will short circuit the engine causing a blown fuse.
Northern Colorado Subaru dealers say they will update the vehicle software, replace the coils and the front exhaust pipes if needed.
The second recall is for Subaru Impreza cars from 2017 to 2019. Subaru says the "aluminum positive crankcase ventilation valves can fall apart." This will cause debris to fall into the engine causing the engine to stall. Not something you want to happen in this cold Northern Colorado weather.
Northern Colorado Subaru dealers recommend taking your Subaru to your dealership and they will replace the valves if needed. If the valve has already separated, the engine will be replaced.
The recalls start December 13.
