Subaru Says Delays Delivery Of Some Models Due To Engine Sensor Defects – By ASC


About 54,000 cars with the engine have been sold in Japan since October 2020 and just for the market, the spokesman said, declining to comment on the number of cars affected by the transmission suspension.

Japan’s Subaru Corp. has suspended shipments of some of its three major car models due to engine sensor damage and also plans to temporarily halt production of the model, the company said on Friday.

The carmaker found problems with sensors in the CB18 engine used in its Forester, Outback and Levorg models, a spokesman said, adding that production of models with the engine would be stopped in the near future, without giving further details.

About 54,000 cars with the engine have been sold in Japan since October 2020 and just for the market, the spokesman said, declining to comment on the number of cars affected by the transmission suspension.

Subaru has not yet decided whether to recall the car and it may take 2-1/2 months before deliveries resume, the spokesman said. The company will continue to manufacture and ship models that do not use the CB18 engine, the spokesman said.

Damage to the sensors caused the engine to fail to start and a warning sign to flash on the dashboard, the spokesman said.

Subaru shares fell 3% in morning trade in Tokyo, after being inundated by open sell orders.
