Vehicles Affected: Approximately 100,000 model-year 2007-09 Subaru Legacy sedans and Outback wagons, 2008-14 Impreza cars and 2009-13 Forester SUVS, all equipped with turbocharged engines
The Problem: The relay that controls the secondary air-injection pump may fail, causing the pump to continuously operate and overheat, and possibly melt, increasing the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the secondary air-injection pump relay for free.
