2020: Subaru recalls

Six recalls for six Subaru models in 2020


In 2020, Subaru announced six recalls for six models through the EU Rapex system.

Problems with the fuel pump harness connector and the consequent risk of fire may occur with the Subaru Crosstrek, Impreza and XV models manufactured between 2017 and 2020. With the same cars, brake fluid may leak from a leaking brake hose.

The crankcase ventilation valves may break with the Crosstrek, Impreza and XV models produced between January 2017 to August 2018. The fuel pump may stop working with older Legacy and Outback models.

All the recalls sorted by models are listed in the tables below.



We’ve written about some problems in more detail in a separate article.
