2018-19 Subaru Impreza recalled

Subaru Australia has become the second brand to recall cars because of improperly-tempered rear window glass, launching a recall for the 2018-19 Impreza. The campaign follows in the footsteps of one announced by Toyota earlier this week. According to Subaru, the left-hand rear door window may have been inadequately tempered because of an incorrect cooling process during manufacture.

2018 Subaru Outback Diesel recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2018 Outback Diesel, over concerns some vehicles might have been fitted with an incorrect oil pipe. According to the company, affected vehicles are fitted with an oil pipe that's too small on the inside. That could leave the turbo's turbine bearing short of oil, which in turn could make it wear prematurely or seize and fracture. If the turbine blade fractures, the fragments might be ingested by the engine, which could make the engine stop and fail to restart.
