Japanese carmaker Subaru has announced two worldwide recalls to fix vehicles with possible engine defects and those with faulty electronic displays. Toyota's recall includes the 86 and the FR-S sports auto.

Now, the companies have named the popular Subaru model Forester as well as Toyota's 86 sports vehicle, as additionally impacted models.

Subaru said valve springs in the recalled cars could fracture and cause the engine to stall, risking an accident. Since these same springs keep engine valves shut during fuel combustion, it's vital for their functional integrity to be intact. 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.

On Thursday, Toyota issued an entirely separate recall on its Scion xA vehicles. The company is recalling cars made between January 2012 and September 2013.

A spokesman for Subaru of America declined to say how many were being recalled in the U.S. Subaru sold almost 270,000 of the four affected models in the U.S. during the period covered by the recall.

Subaru has not said how many cars are being recalled in Canada or the United States, but in Japan, the number is a staggering 101,000. This website is not intended for users located within the European Economic Area.
