The recall covers Impreza cars from the 2017 model year.
In documents filed with the government, Subaru said that a winter blend of fuel could change to vapor in the fuel line, prompting the engine to stall. Drivers may not be able to immediately restart the cars, increasing the risk of a crash.
No crashes or injuries have been reported, and Subaru has yet to post a date for the recall to begin.
