DETROIT, Michigan (April 20, 2017) — Some owners of the 2017 Subaru Impreza reported in January that their brand new vehicles were unexpectedly stalling. Subaru Corporation investigated the problem and now has recalled some 33,000, 2017 Subaru Impreza vehicles in the United States.
The recall was announced this week due to a problem the auto maker discovered with winter fuel blends that could cause the compact car’s engine to stall.
The Japanese-based auto manufacturer reports that certain fuel blends may vaporize prematurely in the fuel lines and cause the vehicles to run rough and eventually stall. Additionally, the driver may have difficulty restarting the engine after this happens, therefore further increasing the risk of a collision.
Fortunately, there have been no reports of injuries or collisions. Owners of these vehicles will need to take their vehicle to the dealership to have the engine control software updated. Once this has been taken care of, the engine cooling fan will come on at a lower temperature and alleviate the problem.
