Fuel pump problem forces Subaru to recall more than 200K vehicles


Subaru is recalling just more than 200,000 cars and SUVs in the United States and Canada because fuel pumps can fail and cause engines to stall.

The recall covers certain 2019 Impreza, Outback, Legacy, and Ascent vehicles. The recalled vehicles were built from June 26, 2018, through Feb. 25, 2019.

In North America, all production of Subaru vehicles takes place at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive plant in Lafayette, which has more than 6,000 employees.

Subaru says in government documents that the low-pressure fuel pump can fail. Engines could lose power while the vehicles are being driven. The engines also might not start or they could run rough.

The documents say Subaru has no reports of crashes or injuries.

Dealers will replace the low-pressure fuel pump at no cost to owners starting June 5.
