The Hazard!

Subaru of New Zealand has been advised by SUBARU CORPORATION that the models listed below may be subjected to Grey Market Secondary Air Injection Pump failure. The affected vehicles need to have the Secondary Air Pump Relay replaced. The check engine warning light may turn on. The relay may also fail and cause the condition where the secondary air pump runs continuously, then subsequently melts the pump causing odor or smoke and possibly pose the risk of fire. Subaru of New Zealand is not aware of this concern having ever caused a fire in New Zealand, but has decided to carry out this recall out of an abundance of caution, following notification from SUBARU CORPORATION.

What to do...

Letters will be sent to owners of potentially affected vehicle as soon as the imported vehicle VIN numbers have been identified and parts are available.
