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, which could result in a short circuit and blown fuse.
If a short circuit occurs while the vehicle is being driven, the vehicle may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will update the ECM software and inspect and replace the ignition coil, as necessary, free of charge.
In addition, on vehicles with confirmed ignition coil damage and a certain stored diagnostic trouble code (DTC), Subaru will replace the front exhaust pipe, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 13, 2019.
Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WUQ-02.
