Subaru has recalled approximately 400,000 cars

The world-famous automaker, Subaru, recently announced the recall of 400,000 vehicles in the United States due to a stalling problem. The recall affects two separate groups of vehicles: 299,000 model years 2018 Legacy and Outback cars; and 166,000 model years 2012-2014 Imprezas, and model year 2013 BRZ, XV Crostrek and Toyota Scion FR-S's.

The first group of vehicles above (the Legacys and Outbacks) has a problem relating to the software in the vehicles that prevents their fuel warning lights from turning on. The fuel indicator problem renders inaccurate the display that states "miles-to-empty." This problem might cause drivers to suddenly run out of gas, stall and get into an accident.

The second group of vehicles referenced above has problems relating to their engine valve springs. These problematic springs could also result in engine stalls and other malfunctions that might result in a serious accident.

Subaru says that it plans to notify affected owners of these vehicles later in November 2018. In the case of the fuel indicator problem, the company will reprogram the computer systems in the vehicles. In the case of the spring issue, the automaker will recall and manually fix the affected cars.

Fortunately, it does not appear that anyone has been injured as a result of the above defects. However, not all owners of defective vehicles find out about their problematic cars before a serious injury or death occurs. If you or a loved were hurt by a defective automobile, you might want to learn more about Tennessee personal injury law to ascertain whether you and your family have the right to pursue financial compensation in court.
