Subaru Recalls 27,000 Vehicles Over Rollaway Risk

  Subaru Recalls 27,000 Vehicles Over Rollaway Risk Subaru is recalling 27,000 of its 2010-2014 Legacy sedans and Outback SUVs with manual transmissions. That's because the electronic parking brake may not engage as intended, which would allow a v ehicle to roll away if it isn't left in gear when parked, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).The automaker says that components in the unit that control the parking brake can crack over time. If that happens, the warning light on the dash will illuminate and the parking brake may not engage.

Last month, Subaru began teasing a special-edition WRX STI that it planned to reveal at this year's Detroit auto show. We later learned the car would be called the S209, suggesting it would be the follow-up to last year's Japan-only S208. Now we have a better idea of what the S209 will look like thanks to a new teaser that Subaru posted on Instagram.

As you can see, the S209 still basically looks like a regular STI. Considering it's just a special edition, though, we didn't expect any wild styling changes. But beyond gray paint and a Type RA-like wing out back, the biggest difference you can see here is a wide-body kit. Unfortunately, adjusting brightness and contrast settings with Photoshop didn't reveal any other important details.

Subaru and Toyota to Recall 165,000 Vehicles for Engine Issues

Subaru and Toyota to Recall 165,000 Vehicles for Engine Issues Subaru and Toyota say they will recall 400,000 vehicles worldwide for potential engine issues that could lead to a car stalling or losing power. The problem is with four-cylinder engines found in the 2012 to 2014 Subaru Impreza, 2013 XV Crosstrek, and 2013 BRZ. This also affects the Scion FR-S, a BRZ clone sold by Toyota’s now-defunct Scion brand. According to Subaru, news about the issue spread before paperwork could be filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some details about the recall remain thin because the safety agency has not completed its review.

Assuming the S209 follows the same formula as the S208 did, expect Subaru to keep production extremely limited. But since it will be offered in the U.S. , there's a chance we'll see a run of more than the 450 S208s Subaru built last year. It should also be more powerful than the regular 310-hp STI, although there's no telling how much more power the S209 will get. The S208 made 324 hp, which wasn't what we'd call a huge power increase.

Still, if it's lighter and more fun to drive on the track, the S209 could end up being popular with Subaru enthusiasts who wanted more from their STI than the Type RA provided. But since Subaru also announced a January 14 reveal, at least we know we only have to wait a week for more details.

Subaru Confirms WRX STI S209 Will Debut in Detroit.
Last week, Subaru teased a mystery WRX STI that was rumored to be the S209. Now, Subaru has confirmed the S209 will debut at the Detroit auto show in January. In a new teaser image, Subaru shows off the car's black grille. Not only does it have special badging, but a red accent line hints at its sporty intentions. The grille looks a lot like the one on the WRX STI S208, which debuted at last year's Tokyo Motor Show. Although Subaru hasn't announced details, it's likely the S209 is a limited-edition model like its predecessors.
