Oct. 24, 2019—Subaru is recalling over 400,000 vehicles due to problems with engine computers and debris that can fall into motors, reports KSTP - 5 Eyewitness News.

The first recall covers 466,000 Imprezas from 2017-19, as well as 2018-19 Crosstreks. Subaru says the engine computer can keep powering the ignition coil after motors are shut off, causing a short circuit and blown fuse.

The second recall covers 205,000 of the same Imprezas and the 2018 Crosstreks. According to the report, the aluminum positive crankcase ventilation valves can fall apart, allowing debris to enter the engine and causing power loss.

Both of the recalls will start on Dec. 13.
