If it's a valve spring it could cover several variants.

I am just thinking, if they're to do with the EJs, there should have been a huge precursor before any recall or maybe they have different data in their labs.

I am not sure, though, if this is to do with the recent turbo FBs' engine failures because that one has precursors and a pending class-action suit. I can only imagine how tedious it will be to do such replacements.

With the SH FB engine NA ours has already been rebuilt under warranty but I know two people who have excessive oil use and Subaru Aust denied their claims

MY 03 SG`s are good......
360000 kms and still going well with original gaskets and motor.
Couple of Simpsons and a Cape York under its tyres with more to come.
Can`t complain at all.

Similar with my SH which has the NA EJ253. 165,000Km and no engine issues at all. I've given it a hard time from new and it doesn't use oil and still goes well. Hopefully it stays that way.

My 2005 MY06 NA Forester had head gasket replaced few years back and is again leaking oil. My MY14 diesel outback had oil leak and repaired under extended warrenty few months back.

I feel the overall quality of the outback has dropped (from the forester). Had both the gas struts of the boot replaced 6 months from brand new beacuse the original pairs couldnt hold the weight of the boot cover, front drive shafts replaced few months back followed by the lower sump oil leak!

Welp, it looks like the Subarus in our household are not affected: https://www.newsweek.com/subaru-toyo...e-part-1196654.
