The faulty parts could cause abnormal noise and engine stalling.

Subaru is recalling over 400,000 vehicles globally to fix a faulty engine part that could cause stalling. Toyota's recall includes the 86 and the FR-S sports vehicle.

These include models powered by either the FA20 or FB20 boxer engines - 2013 MY BRZ, 2013-2014 MY Legacy/Outback, 2012-2014 MY Forester and 2012-2014 MY Impreza/XV. The springs were meant to keep engine valves closed during the fuel combustion process.

According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the engine valve springs of the vehicles could fracture. Along with risking an accident, the faulty springs could also cause severe damage to the engine. Toyota is consequently recalling its BRZ twin, the Scion FR-S.
