Subaru Issues Global Recall For Valve Springs & Multi-Information Display

Subaru Corporation has announced two worldwide recalls for vehicles with possible valve springs defects and those with affected multi-information displays.


Recall of vehicles with affected valve springs

The recall for those with valve spring issues involves vehicles manufactured from:

16 January 2012 – 14 May 2013

The affected models are those equipped with the FA20 engine or FB20 engine:

  • 2013 Model Year (MY) BRZ

  • 2013 – 2014 MY Legacy/ Outback

  • 2012 – 2014 MY Forester

  • 2012 – 2014 MY Impreza/ XV


The recall is a precaution against the possibility of valve springs in the affected engines may fracture under stress. This could result in an unusual noise from the engine, the engine stalling and not able to be restart.

Motor Image customers across the region including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam will be notified about this recall. Valve springs and related parts will be replaced free of charge.


Recall of vehicles with affected multi-information displays

This recall affects 2018 Model Year Legacy/ Outback vehicles manufactured before 1 August 2018, for potential issues with multi-information displays.

A programming issue may lead to inaccuracies in regards to the amount of fuel left, and the actual drivable distance left on the multi-information display. Subaru is taking precautionary measure to ensure that the information on the fuel gauge and the amount of drivable distance left is accurate.

Motor Image customers in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam will also be notified of this recall and will update the software in the multi-information display, free of charge.

Motor Image is in constant contact with Subaru Corporation for updates and will notify affected customers accordingly.
