2002-2003 Subaru Impreza WRX Recalled

Subaru is recalling 5,724 Impreza WRX’s due to an issue with the fuel delivery lines. They may leak, which could cause fire in the presence of an ignition source.

This recall applies to vehicles sold in South Dakota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Colorado, Wisconsin, New York, Wyoming, Michigan, Alaska, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.

The NHTSA said “During cold starts, typically under extremely cold temperatures, fuel leaks in the fuel delivery line could occur where the line connects with a rubber hose. Fuel leaks, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.”

Customers reported a fuel odour connected to this problem, so if you own one of these and sense that odour, you may be getting this problem.

Dealers will replace the fuel line to fix the problem. If you own a 2002-2003 Impreza WRX in the mentioned areas, called your local dealer to get the fix installed.

Other states will receive a warranty extension on the fuel line to 12 years/unlimited mileage, just in case the problem occurs there. So if you are outside the mentioned states but own one of these, have the fuel line checked and get it replaced if needed.
