I checked my Carfax app this morning and found this, I checked with my dealer and it’s legit. As of writing this there isn’t a remedy yet but when there is my dealer is going to let me know.
Serious question?There was a recall on the PCV valve already right? That one changed from a plastic one to a metal one IIRC. But this replacement one could be defective?
I have a catch can on the car, so even if it does fail, it shouldn't cause any issues.
I'm looking to get an OpenPort tune in the near future. I wonder how that would affect the ECU recall? Would you reflash the stock map before taking it in to the dealer?
Not so serious question with a heavy dose of sarcasm.Serious question?
Given the NHTSA Recall just released for my ‘19 which involves ECU reprogramming to fix injector failure and subsequent engine shutdown (for which there is no current remedy), coupled with the PCV thing??
I’d say the answer is obvious.
You're likely OK.More information from the XV Forum:
Randomly, while researching something else I stumbled on two new recalls for the 18 Crosstrek and perhaps others... does anyone have any additional info? Dealer didn't have much info either but had seen an example of the PCV problem on an Impreza. Recalls are WUQ02 and WUP01. Was hoping to get...www.subaruxvforum.com
I checked the VIN of my 2019 Sport 5-door w/ CVT (August delivery) on the SOA website, and it hasn't been recalled. Or maybe not yet...
If you didn't notice it in the link I posted, it appears the coil issue remediation maybe be at the dealers soon:You're likely OK.
My own '19 ltd while purchased new in July '19 was made 11/18 according to its door plaque... so it's a manufacturing date thing. I checked and have the ignition programming recall, with remedy not yet available and marked incomplete. No recall for the PCV valve... which I had verified as "the new one" the week I got it. Again, a manufacturing date thing, with corrections implemented during model runs.
I have to admit, I don't like knowing nothing with possible doom impending... maybe. No information on incidence of failure or ratios. Na da. Not good, but then a web search turned up nothing, so it can't be an epidemic. Guess we'll know more soon from Subaru.
I also called my dealership and made an appointment for when they get the recall and remedy... they didn't know anything about it.
