Vehicle Safety Recalls

Vehicle manufacturers take safety very seriously with all companies having robust procedures to undertake recalls if a safety related fault is found in a vehicle model. As the official representatives of a vehicle marque, MIA members carry out safety related recall campaigns which involve:

  1. Identifying the vehicles in which the fault may occur (note that with the vast majority of safety recall campaigns actual failure rates are extremely low);
  2. with the help of NZTA, getting the updated records of the registered owners; and
  3. contacting these vehicle owners to have the vehicle inspected and repaired (all free of charge) at the nearest franchise dealership.

SUBARU  WRX, LEGACY, FORESTER Various years 2007-2009

Recalled:
1 Jun 2018

Statement:
November 2008 - Subaru of New Zealand have been advised by FHI (Fuji Heavy Industries, the Japanese manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) on certain MY07-08 Legacy, MY08 Impreza WRX and MY09 Forester XT models with the 2.5 turbo engine that the turbo charger oil supply pipe may have been misaligned during the assembly process. In some circumstances, a misaligned oil pipe could crack causing an engine oil leak leading to the possibility of fire within the engine bay compartment. The turbo charger oil supply line is located on the driver’s side of the engine bay. If the pipe is misaligned, vibration experienced during normal driving could result in a crack developing in the pipe over time, causing an engine oil leak. If leaking engine oil contacts other engine components operating at high temperatures, an engine compartment fire could result.
