Why The Subaru Ignition Coil Recall?

Subaru released a statement containing the findings of an investigation they had carried out.

According to the findings, an improper Engine Control Module (ECM) may continue to power the ignition coil long after shutting off the engine resulting in a short circuit. A prolonged short circuit may blow the ignition coil fuse, resulting in issues such as stalling mid-drive, which can cause accidents.

While there aren't any reported accidents due to the faulty ignition coils, the manufacturer saw it as a reason to initiate a recall.

Who Is Eligible For The Subaru Ignition Coil Recall?

The good news is that not all Subaru vehicles have faulty ignition coils, and so not all are recalled.

You are eligible for the claim if you drive:

  • 2017 - 2019 Subaru Impreza
  • 2018 - 2019 Subaru Crosstrek

To be sure, you can do a VIN check with the NHTSA and sift through the numerous recalled vehicles.

If you are successful, the manufacturer might:

  • Replace the faulty ignition coil with a functioning one without charge
  • Repair the faulty ignition coil and update the ECM, free of charge
  • Reimburse you for the purchase of the vehicle, excluding the depreciated value. Additionally, the manufacturer should reimburse you if you have replaced or repaired the faulty ignition coil. Ensure you attach the original service repair order, which has the name of the repair facility, date of repair, mileage at the time of repair, vehicle identification number (VIN), and your details.

The harsh truth is, while you might get a replacement or repair, this process might take longer than necessary, especially if you lack the time or capability to make the check.

But that shouldn't be the case, and DoNotPay is here to make sure of that.

Do You Immediately Get A Recall If You Report Your Product?

The short answer is no, especially if you DIY.

The repair or replacement period can take up to a few hours. However, the period before making the repairs or replacement should worry you as the manufacturer might take long before initiating the recall or sending out the recall notices.

What if you bought the vehicle from another owner instead of a dealer and hadn't completed the ownership transfer process?

Don't take the chance to bench your vehicle by waiting, not when you can use DoNotPay.
