22/09/2019

The Public Authority for Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Oman Gulf Projects Company, has launched a recall campaign for 17 Subaru (WRX) 2016-2018 models based on chassis numbers from (JF1VA11K6GG007583) to (JF1VA11L5JG013777). This recall is due to the looseness of (6) exhaust nuts to install the exhaust pipe on top of the cylinders, which can lead to leakage of exhaust emissions, which violates regulations and conventions related to emissions.

 

Accordingly, the company will examine the six tensile nuts in the affected vehicles to make sure that the front exhaust pipe nuts are tightened with the cylinder head. If the nuts are loosened or exhaust gas leaks, the front exhaust pipe will be replaced.

 

The recalls confirms the Authority's efforts in the field of traffic safety in cooperation with the agencies working in the field, and in line with its keenness on the procedures of continuous reviews of all products on the market in the Sultanate in order to provide the necessary protection to consumers in all areas.
