Subaru Corp. said Monday it will file for a recall of some 255,000 vehicles next week after uncertified workers were found to have carried out final car inspections.

Subaru will recall all of its 12 models that have been sold in the past three years whose owners have never had their cars undergo safety inspections required by law before delivery. The models include the “86” sports car, manufactured by Subaru for Toyota Motor Corp. The minivehicles supplied by Daihatsu Motor Co. will not be subject to recall.
