Subaru of America is issuing two recalls for 466,205 late-model Imprezas and Crosstreks, according to a statement to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Information Administration.
The first recall impacts 2017-2019 Imprezas and 2018-2019 Crosstreks, due to engine issues which may continue to run even after the engine is shut off. This poses a higher risk of crash if a short circuit occurs while in use.
The second recall affects 2017-2019 Imprezas but only 2018 the Crosstreks, Subaru said. These have Positive Crankcase Ventilation valves that may come apart where debris may fall into the engine. The result could be loss of power while in operation, increasing the likelihood of an accident.
Both recalls are expected to start December 13. Subaru will notify owners if their vehicle needs to be inspected.
