The engine’s valve spring may not be strong enough. As a consequence, it could fracture under stress, causing the engine to stall whilst the vehicle is in movement.

The Subaru Legacy models affected by this recall were produced between 2013 and 2014.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Subaru dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
