Subaru recalls vehicles with turbo-charged engines over defect in secondary air injection pumps



Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 model year Legacy and Outback vehicles, 2008-2014 Impreza vehicles and 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, all equipped with turbo-charged engines. The relay that controls the secondary air injection pump may fail, causing the pump to continuously operate and overheat.

100,127 vehicles are affected by the recall

If the air injection pump overheats, it may melt and increase the risk of a fire.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will replace the secondary air injection pump relay, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

My mother owned a Subaru Forester. She got in it on January 24th, 2013 and accidentally backed off of her driveway. The drive was steep and had a severe drop off. She slid into a tree and tried to drive herself out of trouble. Within 10 minutes the car caught fire and she died from the fumes. Her body was not recognizable by the time the fire truck got the fire put out. It never made sense that the vehicle caught fire, but we were in shock and in mourning. Now we see that Subaru has a recall and is reporting no deaths. Is there anything to be done?
