Subaru is recalling over 400,000 vehicles globally to repair a faulty engine part that could cause stalling.

The recall involves the Forester sport-utility vehicle and Impreza compact, as well as the BRZ sports car.

Toyota’s 86 sports car, which is made by Subaru, was sold in the U.S. as the Scion FR-S during the period covered by the recall, according to Dow Jones Newswires.

All the cars were made in 2012 and 2013.

Subaru said valve springs in the recalled cars could fracture and cause the engine to stall, risking an accident.

The repairs are likely to be costly with Subaru picking up the tab.

The work could take more than 12 hours.
