Subaru Baja recalls

Engine, October 23, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Cracks may develop from the fuel hose connection at the outlet (pressure) side of the fuel pump. As a result, a fuel leak may develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump bracket, including all nipples, with new, stronger part. This recall is expected to begin during September 2009. The Subaru recall number is WVJ-20.

For Models: Subaru Baja, Subaru Forester, Subaru Impreza

Engine, October 8, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On 26 vehicles, the engine oil control valve cover may not have been tightened properly, which could allow oil to leak. If leaking oil contacts hot engine components, a fire could result in the engine compartment. Dealers will inspect and retighten the oil-flow control valve cover bolts. The recall began October 8, 2004. The Subaru recall number is WWU-05.

Drive Train, January 8, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The transmission park mechanism located inside the automatic transmission may not hold when the selector is in the "park" position. The vehicle could move/roll without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the automatic transmission parking rod assembly to correct this concern.

Engine, September 12, 2002

RepairPal Expert Overview:

555 vehicles with a 4-cylinder engine may have a water pump pulley with a center hole that was improperly machined and is too large. This could result in the pulley coming off of the water pump during normal vehicle operation, causing severe engine damage. Dealers will replace the water pump to correct this concern.
