Subaru is officially recalling 100k cars over a fire hazard.

A total of 100,127 turbocharged cars have been recalled by Subaru over a fire risk recently. The vehicles which have been recalled include the 2007 to 2009 Subaru Legacy and Outback, acording to NHTSA.

The Impreza which were manufactured in 2008 to 2014 and the Forester that were manufactured from 2007 to 2009. All of these cars have a 2.5 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. 

The problem which was reported and due to which this recalled is being made includes the failure of injection pump. It was seen that the faulty relay in the turbocharged engine of these cars can cause the secondary air injection pump to fail.

The relay can overheat and fail if it works continuously for a long time. This can result in melting of the part and fire can be caused in some cases too. 

The problem has been reported multiple times, but none of the deaths and injuries have been reported. The company has offered the solution for the problem as well.

The Subaru dealers will fix these problems in an easy way. They will fix the defective secondary air injection pump relay at no change. The owners of the cars will only have to take their cars to the nearby Subaru dealers where their cars will be examined properly. 

The company will notify and contact the owners of affected cars shortly. After that a schedule for the fix of problem will be released. The Owners can call the Subaru customer service center’s line 1-800-782-2783 in order to see if their car fits the criteria.
