RepairPal Expert Overview
The engine may stall due to winter fuel blends vaporizing prematurely in the fuel lines. This would increase risk of an accident.
Recall repairs on your Subaru must be performed by a Subaru dealership. Subaru will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is unavailable as of the time of this writing). If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Subaru dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Subaru recall number for this program is WTP-75.
Winter blend fuels may vaporize prematurely in the fuel lines, possibly causing the engine to stall. Dealers will reprogram the engine control unit to turn on the radiator cooling fan at a lower temperature free of charge to resolve the concern.
