Subaru has issued a recall of its 2017 Impreza models due to a defect in the fuel line.

According to, winter fuels “may vaporize prematurely in the fuel line, resulting in a reduction in fuel pressure that could cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.”

Subaru recommends that dealers reprogram the engine control unit by turning the radiator cooling fan on at a lower temperature.

It is recommended that owners contact the automaker at 800-782-2738; or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236; or visit where owners can check their vehicle identification number.
