Subaru Recalls Vehicles for Ignition Switches Featured

By Staff Writer May 06, 2019 218

Subaru of America Inc. is recalling 511 2009-13 Forester vehicles, 2008-11 Impreza vehicles, 2008-14 WRX vehicles, 2005-14 Legacy vehicles, 2005-14 Outback vehicles and 2006-08 Tribeca vehicles equipped with a mechanical key ignition switch installed as a replacement part.


The ball spring inside the switch may break, reducing the strength of the ignition switch. If this occurs, the weight on the key ring and certain road conditions could cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position to the accessory position, turning off the engine.


Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the ignition switch, replacing the ignition switch, if necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 10.


Subaru's number for this recall is WUF-91.
