Subaru is taking another big hit as they will now recall over 400,000 vehicles globally, including USA models over a faulty valve spring in the FB 2.0-liter Boxer engine.

This could result in an unusual noise coming from the engine, engine stalling and engine failing to restart.

The recall is due to springs in the engine valve that could fracture and cause the auto to stall, the carmakers said on Thursday. Toyota is recalling the Subaru-made 86 and Scion FR-S sports auto.

On Thursday, Toyota issued an entirely separate recall on its Scion xA vehicles.

Marketwatch reports that the recall includes popular Subaru models, like the Forester SUV and the Impreza, in addition to the BRZ sports vehicle. The Toyota 86, which was sold as the Scion FR-S in the United States during the recall period in question, is also affected here.

The affected vehicles included 101,153 cars of four models including the Impreza, produced domestically between January 2012 and September 2013, as well as 310,000 units overseas.

Individuals believed to be impacted by these recalls should begin receiving additional information in the mail starting in December.

The report says 101,000 of the recalled Subaru vehicles were sold in Japan. The company estimates that about 0.1 percent of the recalled models will experience the problem.

The repairs won't be cheap as Subaru believes the engine work will take more than 12 hours to complete. These are Subaru BRZ coupes, Legacy sedans, Outback SUVs, Forester SUVs as well as Impreza sedans and XV crossovers equipped with the FA20 engine or FB20 engine.
