PhotoSubaru of America is recalling 205,000 model year 2017-2019 Imprezas and model year 2018 Crosstreks equipped with an aluminum Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve.

The PCV valve may come apart, allowing the separated components to enter the engine, possibly resulting in a loss of power while the vehicle is being driven.

An unexpected loss of power can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the PCV valve, free of charge.

If the PCV valve has separated and the components cannot be found, the engine will be replaced, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin December 13, 2019.

Owners may contact Subaru customer service at (844) 373-6614. Subaru’s number for this recall is WUP-01.
