Subaru Recall for Faulty Valve Springs


Recommended Posts



On Thursday, the car makers said springs in the engine valve could fracture and cause the vehicles to stall, risking an accident. These springs keep engine valves closed during the fuel combustion process. When they fail, it can cause severe damage to the engine.


Toyota said its vehicles accounted for about 80,000 of the total. In the U.S., Toyota is recalling about 25,000 Scion FR-S cars manufactured between March 2012 and July 2013. The recalled Subaru vehicles were made between January 2012 and September 2013. Subaru said 101,000 of the recalled vehicles were sold in Japan. A company spokesman declined to say how many vehicles were being recalled in the U.S.
