100.127 units of four different models of the japanese company Subaru have been called to review in the united States by the NHTSA. Apparently these more than 100,000 units suffer from a problem with the management of the supercharging, which could result in a fire, with serious risks to the occupants that this entails.
The models, called to review are the Subaru Legay, Outback, Impreza, and also Forester, all of these vehicles are turbocharged. The failure seems to come from the turbo itself, if not its management. Specifically a relay defective does not do well its function, which may lead to overheating. When this occurs, the light “engine failure” appears in the box of instruments and, if the driver ignores or is not aware of this, the system will begin to smell of burning, popping a flame later.
should Not be nothing nice about that, all of a sudden, the light comes on a fault, you choose to continue your route towards the destination point and a little later begin to smell “singed” while the flames begin to devour the engine bay. As we know, this outcome has already been given in two vehicles of the more than 100,000 so-called review, having appeared the same problem in five other vehicle but that, fortunately, did not come to the end of the fire.
The Subaru Legacy and Outback affected were produced between 2007 and 2009, the Impreza between 2008 and 2014, and the units of the Forester 2009-2013. It is for this reason that we always recommend take a look at the dashboard while driving, and listen to the lights fault, that we can see are lit; so that we must take action conveniently taking our vehicle to the workshop. we must Also never forget that the witnesses of temperature the liquid coolant and the oil; and, of course, the level of the fuel. In case of detecting any anomaly, the best thing we can do is stop and call to the crane, so avoid the greater evils.
