The recall affects its imported Forester, XV and BRZ models manufactured between 2012 and 2013, the State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement.

The engine valve springs in the vehicles may bear a higher load than designed, and tiny impurities in the springs may lead to fractures, causing engines to malfunction or stall.

Subaru will replace the problematic valve springs free of charge.
