The contact owns a 2014 Subaru Brz. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to coconut creek Subaru (4980 N, fl-7, coconut creek, fl 33073; (888) 459-5432) for an unstated recall on the valve spring. The contact stated that recently while the brakes were depressed at a red light, the vehicle shut-off independently. The vehicle was restarted however, there was a knocking sound coming from the engine. The contact took the vehicle to another dealer, North fort lauderdale Subaru (855 S. federal hwy, pompano beach, fl 33062; (954) 889-5776) and was informed that the engine was knocking and that the oil was low. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The contact stated that an oil change was not due for several thousand more miles. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 102,000.

Driving 74 mph on highway with cruise control on. Subtle, repeating forward jerking motion felt for 3 seconds, then went away. Check engine light was flashing during the jerking motion and turned off when jerking motion stopped. The jerking motion and blinking light came back 4 to 5 times before becoming violent. I pushed in the clutch pedal during the violent jerking motions and the engine shut off (while still at 74 mph). Kept the clutch pedal pushed in and pulled over to the shoulder and attempted to restart the engine, but would make one click noise, then stop. Car towed to mechanic and found broken valve springs and rocker arms inside the engine.

This may be similar to the current recall posted for earlier models of the Scion fr-S and Subaru Brz, however my car was manufactured after the recalled production time frame. (cuts off at September 2013, my car was made in December 2013) my car is a 2014 Subaru Brz manual and when idling stationary, once in a while rpms drop and car shakes as if it's trying to stall. This is more noticeable when I tap the gas pedal and rev the car just a bit.
