Subaru of America is recalling 466,205 model year 2017-2019 Imprezas and model year 2018-2019 Crosstreks.
The Engine Control Module (ECM) may continue to power the ignition coil after the engine is shut off, causing a short circuit.
A short circuit in the ignition coils may cause a stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will update the ECM software, replace the ignition coils and -- if necessary -- the front exhaust pipe free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 28, 2021.
Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WRE-21.
