Subaru of America is recalling 228,648 model year 2018 Legacys and Outbacks.
Due to a software error, the low fuel warning light may not illuminate at the intended remaining fuel level and the miles-to-empty display may incorrectly indicate a positive number despite the tank being empty.
The inaccurate fuel display may cause a driver to unexpectedly run out of fuel and the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the combination meter software, free of charge.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
