Description of the Fuel Impeller Failure Recall:

A low pressure fuel pump used in manufacturing these vehicles between June of 2018 and February of 2019 has an impeller manufactured with lower density materials.  This impeller may develop fine cracks when exposed to long periods of solvent drying.  The cracks have shown to eventually cause increased fuel absorption with resulting impeller deformation.  It's been found that a deformed fuel pump impeller can interfere with the operation of the pump or strike the pump body causing it to fail. If the fuel pump ceases to function the check engine light may illuminate.  A Subaru with a fuel pump failure may run rough or the engine could stall during operation and not restart increasing risk of a potential crash.

How is this Fuel Pump Safety Recall fixed and how long will it take?

The fuel pump that contains the low density impeller will be replaced with newer model pumps manufactured with higher density components preventing the potential deformation. This repair should take no more than a couple hours.  All Subaru's affected by the Fuel Pump Impeller Failure Safety Recall WRD-20 will have their pump replaced at now charge to the vehicle owner.  All safety recalls should be completed by a certified Subaru technician at a Subaru dealership service center
