Subaru is recalling 228,648 Subaru Legacy sedans and Subaru Outback crossover vehicles due to an error that could allow misreport whether or not there is enough gas in the tank.
Every vehicle built between the dates of Feb. 1, 2017 and Aug. 17, 2018 is affected by the recall, Subaru reported.
It turns out the software governing the fuel system has a programming glitch that can cause the vehicle’s computer to display a positive distance-to-empty range even when the gas tank is empty.
Drivers may continue to drive their vehicle without any usable gas and put themselves at risk of the vehicle stalling, causing a collision or running out of gas and becoming stranded.
Subaru says the software bug can be easily fixed with their technicians. They will begin notifying owners of these vehicles within 60 days to alert them about the problem.
