The Hazard!

January 2016 - Subaru of New Zealand has been advised by Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI - the Japanese manufacturer of Subaru vehicles) that certain vehicles fitted with a secondary air injection system may fail due to a faulty relay, and in a worst case scenario, the secondary air pump will run continuously. Subsequently the pump can then overheat and partially melt causing odour or smoke and in extreme circumstances may possibly pose the risk of fire. Consequently, Subaru of New Zealand has decided to carry out a safety recall out of an abundance of caution, following notification from FHI.

What to do...

Please contact a Subaru Authorised Dealer to arrange an appointment to have the recall carried out.
