Approximately 188,200 model-year 2019 Subaru Ascent SUVs, Impreza sedans and hatchbacks, Legacy sedans and Outback wagons are being recalled due to a faulty fuel pump that could cause the engine to stall while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a crash. Before a stall occurs, drivers may notice that the engine runs rough, shaking or making unusually loud noises, or see the check engine light illuminated on the dashboard.
Subaru will begin notifying owners on June 5. Owners can call the automaker at 844-373-6614 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the fuel pump.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
