Oct. 24, 2019—Subaru is recalling over 400,000 vehicles due to problems with the engine computers and debris that can fall into motors, reports KSTP .

The first recall covers 466,000 Imprezas from 2017 through 2019, as well as 2018 and 2019 Crosstreks. Subaru says the engine computer can keep powering the ignition coil after motors are shut off, causing a short circuit and blown fuse.

The second recall covers 205,000 the same Imprezas and the 2018 Crosstreks. According to the report, the aluminum positive crankcase ventilation valves can fall apart, allowing debris to enter the engine and causing power loss.

Both of the recalls will start on Dec. 13.
