Subaru of America has recalled 165,026 vehicles due to a fuel pump defect that could cause the engine to suddenly stall while driving.

The fuel pump may develop cracks and fail due to improper manufacturing, according to Subaru.

The problem increases the risk of a crash, but no accidents or injuries have been reported, according to a recall notice posted on July 29 with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Subaru first discovered problems with the low-pressure fuel pump last year. If it is failing, the engine may run poorly, or the car may not start.

Honda also recently issued 2 recalls for vehicles with fuel pumps from the same manufacturer, according to Consumer Reports.

Subaru’s recall includes the following vehicles:

  • 2019-2020 Ascent
  • 2018 Forester
  • 2018-2020 Impreza
  • 2018-2020 Legacy
  • 2018-2020 Outback
  • 2018-2019 BRZ
  • 2018-2019 WRX
  • 2018-2018 Toyota 86
