2005-2006 Subaru Baja recalled for fuel pump

Subaru has recalled the handful of 2005-2006 Baja models they ever managed to sell. Totaling 15,633 vehicles, the NHTSA says that cracks may develop in the fuel hose connection on the outlet pressure side of the fuel pump.

As a result, fuel can leak from the hose connection. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.

Dealers will replace the fuel pump bracket including all nipples with a new and stronger design part. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during September 2009. Owners may contact subaru at 1-800-782-2783.
