Subaru of America is recalling 100,127 2007- to 2009-model year Legacy and Outback vehicles, 2008- to 2014-MY Impreza vehicles, and 2009- to 2013-MY Forester vehicles so dealers can address a potential fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
All of the recalled vehicles are equipped with turbo-charged engines. The relay that controls the secondary air injection pump may fail, causing the pump to continuously operate and overheat. During such overheating, the pump may melt and increase the risk of fire, NHTSA said.
Subaru dealers will replace the secondary air injection pump relay. There will be no charge for this service.
Vehicle owners can reach Subaru customer service at (800) 782-2783. Subaru’s number for this recall is WTM-73.
