Subaru Issues Big Recalls for Crosstrek, Impreza, Forester
Two enormous recalls are out today for Subaru owners, and if you have a 2019 Crosstrek, your car is affected by both of them. The first, concerning some 466,000 vehicles, involves an issue with the engine control module; the second, for 405,000 vehicles, involves bolts on the rear stabilizer bracket.

The recall regarding the engine control module is for model-year 2017-19 Impreza sedans and hatchbacks and model-year 2018-19 Crosstrek SUVs. Ignition coils could, over time, degrade and cause starting or stalling issues, increasing the risk of a crash. To repair, dealers will check and, as necessary, update the engine control module programming and replace all ignition coils.
The recall for bolts on the rear stabilizer bracket involves model-year 2019 Forester wagons and Crosstrek SUVs. The bolts could come loose over time, and a loose bracket could then interact with other components, causing damage and increasing the risk of a crash. As a fix, dealers will examine and re-torque the bolts.
In both cases, Subaru says incident rates are extremely low and no related accidents or injuries have been reported. Dealers will perform all repairs for free, and owners will be notified by June 14. Those with further questions can call the automaker at 844-373-6614, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
