47,419 Vehicles Recalled by Subaru Over Asphyxiation Risk

Posted on

Impreza, Outback, Legacy, and Crosstrek vehicles of model years ranging between 2010 and 2013 are being recalled by Subaru because of an issue with the remote starter key fob.  47,419 automobiles in total could suffer from the defect, which could find the remote starter suddenly being activated without warning if a user drops the fob.  This could lead the engine to turn on and off intermittently over 15 minute intervals.  Not only could this drain the fob’s battery and the vehicle’s fuel, it could lead to carbon monoxide asphyxiation if the vehicle in question is kept in a small space such as a garage.  Owners should hear from Subaru before April draws to a close.  The vehicles can be brought in to dealers, who will switch out the key fobs with a non-defective unit.
