Automakers Subaru and Toyota Motor Corp. are recalling more than 400,000 vehicles because of a valve spring problem that could stall engines and heighten the risk of accidents. The Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 sport coupes are powered by the Subaru 2.0-liter engine which has the engine defect.

The recall is due to springs in the engine valve that could fracture and cause the vehicle to stall, the carmakers said on Thursday.

A Subaru spokesman did not say how many vehicles were being recalled in the USA, according to MarketWatch. Toyota's recall includes the 86 and the FR-S sports auto. Most of the vehicles were manufactured between January 17, 2012, through June 6, 2013 and all powered by the FB20 2.0-liter Boxer naturally aspirated engine.
