Subaru, Toyota recalling more than 400,000 vehicles over faulty engine part

Motor vehicle giants Subaru and Toyota are recalling hundreds of thousands of cars due to a defect found inside engines in certain models, which could be potentially unsafe. There is the possibility that the engine could stall while driving and not restart, raising the risk of a crash.

A spokesman for Subaru of America declined to say how many were being recalled in the U.S. Subaru sold almost 270,000 of the four affected models in the U.S. during the period covered by the recall.

These include models powered by either the FA20 or FB20 boxer engines - 2013 MY BRZ, 2013-2014 MY Legacy/Outback, 2012-2014 MY Forester and 2012-2014 MY Impreza/XV.

All the cars were made in 2012 and 2013.

Toyota is recalling a total of 80,000 cars worldwide.

On Oct. 23, Subaru cut its group net profit estimate for the first half ended September to ¥49 billion ($434 million) from ¥79.1 billion, citing costs related to "quality".

Subaru and Toyota are recalling 165,000 cars in the U.S. This recall affects the 2018 MY Legacy/Outback vehicles made before August 1, 2018. Of the Subaru vehicles, about 100,000 were sold in Japan. Motor Image confirms it will notify affected customers in Malaysia about the recall, and will replace the parts free of charge.
