The lawsuit against Subaru's crappy windshields will move forward after partially surviving the automaker's motion to dismiss. The windhsields crack and chip at an alarming rate, but Subaru doesn't cover replacements under warranty if the issue is due to a defect. According to them the warranty only covers material or workmanship issues. Strange position to take, but ok.
Subaru has approved a Starlink lawsuit settlement even after denying their infotainment system is full of defects. Stuff like the backup camera freezing, the radio failing, and the screen going blank.
"Our windshields may crack, but we didn't break federal safety standard #205" appears to be Subaru's defense in court against a class-action cracked windshield lawsuit.
Just a month after Powell v. Subaru, a second lawsuit is accusing the automaker of selling cars with defective windshields. The plaintiffs say the use of "acoustic glass" in the windshields seems to correspond with the uptick in complaints.
The lawsuit says Subaru refuses to pay for repairs under warranty even though the cracks are not being caused by an external force, but some internal defect. Additionally, the cost to replace the windshield skyrockets because the EyeSight system needs to be recalibrated each time.
