Subaru of America is recalling 51,613 model year 2019 Crosstreks, Foresters and Ascents.
The aluminum Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve can separate, allowing engine oil and components of the PCV valve into the combustion chamber, resulting in a loss of power while driving.
An unexpected loss of power can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the PCV valve free of charge. If the PCV valve has separated and the components cannot be found, the short block engine will be replaced, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin January 24, 2020.
Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WUW-08.
