2018 Subaru Legacy

Latino Traffic Report has learned that Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain 2018 Subaru Legacy and Outback vehicles. Due to a software error, the low fuel warning light may not illuminate at the intended remaining fuel level and the miles-to-empty display may incorrectly indicate a positive number despite the tank being empty.

A second letter will be mailed when the remedy is available. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-844-373-6614. Subaru’s number for this recall is WTW-82.
