  • Subaru of America will recall 466,205 vehicles to fix a potential problem with the ignition coils, which could degrade and lead to "starting or stalling issues." The vehicles being recalled are the 2017–2019 Impreza and 2018–2019 Crosstrek.

  • A second recall, issued at the same time, is to tighten bolts on the rear stabilizer bracket. This recall includes 405,000 2019 Crosstrek and Forester models.

  • Subaru says there have been no accidents or injuries reported from either issue.

Subaru of America has announced that it will recall nearly half a million Crosstrek and Impreza vehicles from the 2017 through 2019 model years over a problem with ignition coils that could degrade and cause stalling. The automaker says that reports of this occurrence are "extremely low" and no accidents or injuries have been reported. The recall includes 466,205 2017–2019 Impreza and 2018–2019 Crosstrek vehicles. Subaru said it will notify affected owners by mid-June; dealers will check and update the engine control module programming and replace ignition coils.

Separately, Subaru is also recalling 405,000 2019 Crosstrek and Forester vehicles to check and re-torque rear stabilizer bracket bolts that could come loose and cause damage. The automaker says that in this case, too, there have been very few reports and no accidents or injuries.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not yet listed these two recalls on its recalls website, but owners can check there to find out if their vehicle is involved in the recall.
