Among the 24 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November, comes news of the following:

Subaru of America, Inc. (“Subaru”) has recalled an estimated 228,648 model year 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.

According to the NHTSA, 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 registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the combination meter software, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-844-373-6614. Subaru’s number for this recall is WTW-82.
