Report: Subaru Front O2 Sensor Recall
Subaru Forester Problem
Average Mileage: 118,517 mi (105 mi - 183,000 mi)
The front oxygen (air fuel ratio) sensor element may develop a crack, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Subaru has recalled certain models to replace sensors that may fail. The Subaru service program number is WXW-80, this is not a government mandated recall.

I had the sensor replaced. I did not know about the defect. Still my car failed inspection due to deficient emission system. Now I am learning that there is a problem with the computers on this model too sensitive.

Check engine light on and service dept said not to worry. It is probably just a problem with the sensor. This is the 2nd time being serviced for this problem.
