Not looking good for Subaru on top of their falsifying braking & steering data.

And a recall for free replacement of leaking head gaskets on the EJ25x engines wouldn't hurt ...

And how far back this recall would be?

Back to 2004/2005 or even earlier would be excellent - I feel leaking head gaskets is an ongoing design issue of Subaru engines for so long ...

Can't go past the old 2003 SG Forester's can you Kevin.

I think recalls will be much more common especially for modern cars. Newer cars have more parts installed, and therefore, more points of failure. Also, the turnaround from designing to production is as quick as 18-months due to software and automation.

Cars, nowadays, for me, are marketed as mainstream consumer products, wherein they just listen to whatever the customers want. If customers want hardcore smart devices connectivity, manufacturers tend to focus on those and tend to leave mechanical issues behind. They bank on consumers changing cars like they do with their smartphones. Think about how @temmah was contacted regarding trading-in his SJ.

Regarding the article, the points are still rumours. I will be waiting for an official one from Subaru. I am assuming it's to do with the FB engines.

I sort of had a tiny thought my call from the dealer could have been about a recall of something and trying to offset the loss.
