Subaru has issued a pair of recalls this week, targeting four of its most popular models in Australia from model-years 2015 and 2016.

The first concerns 2015 and 2016 Forester XT and WRX models with direct-injection turbocharged engines, as a weakness has been identified with the air-intake.

The intake duct may develop a crack, as materials used to construct the duct may not be to specification.

A crack and subsequent air-intake discrepancies may lead to rough engine idle, a loss of power or in extreme cases, a stalled engine.

Should the engine stall while driving, a hazard may result for the vehicle’s occupants and other road users.

A total of 1941 cars are included in the recall.

The second recall targets 2015 Liberty and Outback models, of which 15,585 are included.

Subaru says the vehicle’s electronic park-brake motor may “stick” after application, at which point the driver may not be able to move the vehicle.

A stranded vehicle could pose a hazard to its occupants and other road-users.

Software programming issues with the Vehicle Dynamics Control module are the cause of the problem.

Subaru says all work will be carried out free of charge, and that it will attempt to contact affected owners shortly. Owners wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls can contact their local dealer, or phone Subaru Australia on 1800 226 643.
