Default Subaru Recalls 163,243 Vehicles in U.S. for Transmission Flaw

I'm curious if this includes the WRX. I assume so as it is an Impreza.

Only 816 total vehicles with the flaw, though - around half of 1 percent...

I wonder if that applies to Canada as well. (I know it didn't mention Canada per say.)

Canada wasn't mentioned because this is a SOA recall. Subaru of Canada was not a part of Subaru of America last time I checked .

I actually just recieved word that our dealer has in fact been notified of said recall. I only figured that Canada may have been part of the recall (just not mention) as we get the same vehicles as you (more or less).

Just make sure you use that little "E-Brake thingy" and you'll be safe.
