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.
The inaccurate fuel display may cause a driver to unexpectedly run out of fuel and the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the combination meter software, free of charge. Interim owner notification letters were mailed December 17, 2018. 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.
