Subaru WRX: Sometimes The Throaty Sound Isn’t Always Good

By  | 

Normally we love to hear the raw throaty sound of the Subaru WRX but sometimes it seems the roar isn’t always good. This is so thanks to the recall by Subaru of the 2015 and 2016 Forester XT WRX versions.

The recall is down to the turbocharger issue air intake duct which is on the affected 2 litre engines. It seems that the issue is down to it cracking and this may mean that the engine might stall and it could catch fire. It seems that about 18,200 vehicles may be affected by the recall and they include the Forester XT turbocharged vehicle in the US.

Subaru had the same issue with the stalling of engines last year and it was down to cracks in the turbocharged air intake. It was said that incorrect materials had been used when the vehicles were being produced. If the duct was to crack then it caused an idle sound in the engine and the power was reduced and it could lead to the engine stalling.

Owners of the affected Subaru WRX were asked to take the vehicle to the dealer and it would be inspected along with parts, free of charge.
