Subaru of America has issued a recall affecting an estimated 100,127 model year 2007-2009 Legacy and Outback vehicles, 2008-2014 Impreza vehicles, and 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, all equipped with turbo-charged engines.

On the affected vehicles, the relay that controls the secondary air injection pump may fail, causing the pump to continuously operate and overheat.

If the air injection pump overheats, it may melt and increase the risk of a fire.

Subaru will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local Subaru dealers will replace the secondary air injection pump relay, free of charge.

Subaru has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this recall.
