Subaru did the right thing by recalling over 200,000 vehicles that are at risk of stalling out because of a defect in their Denso fuel pumps.
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.
Last month Denso announced that nearly 2 million of its low-pressure fuel pumps will need to be recalled before they cause the engine to stall. The recall will replace the pumps in certain vehicles but a new Canadian lawsuit says that doesn't go far enough.
A group of 2019 models equipped with Denso low-pressure fuel pumps have been recalled after multiple reports of the engine stalling out. The impellers inside the pumps may have been excessively exposed to a drying agent during manufacturing.
Subaru is recalling 783,000 vehicles to replace dangerous Takata airbag inflators. This campaign is part of an industry-wide effort involving more than a dozen automakers and 1.7 million vehicles. The chemical inside of Takata airbag inflators can become unstable over time, leading to violent and sometimes deadly airbag deployments. The recall is for both driver and passenger side inflators in certain 2010-2014 model years, but is limited to certain states.
A lawsuit filed in New Jersey is tired of waiting around for software updates to Subaru’s STARLINK system to solve any of the wide ranging problems owners are experiencing.
Subaru customers also complain about turning off the engines with the Starlink screens frozen, resulting in drained batteries that strand drivers. In addition, there is a clear and present safety issue if a driver relies on a frozen backup camera screen believing the image is in real time.
Whoever had January 20th in the how long will it take for Subaru to have its first Takata recall in 2018 pool, step forward to claim your prize. The automaker is recalling 230,000 vehicles to replace their passenger-side airbag inflators.
After some prodding, Subaru has decided to extend the warranty on their Lineartronic CVT.
A Subaru transmission warranty extension has been issued for 2010-2015 Legacy and Outback, 2012-2015 Impreza, 2013-2015 Crosstrek, 2014-2015 Crosstrek Hybrid, 2014-2015 Forester and 2015 WRX vehicles, all equipped with continuously variable transmissions (CVTs).
Subaru has been sued over its use of a soy-based wire coating, which one owner claims is attracting rodents and leading to thousands of dollars in damage.
Plaintiff Joy Diane Shuey says she purchased a new 2015 Subaru Forester, but about a month later she took the SUV back to the dealer because of a fuel odor and an illuminated check engine light.
Are winterized fuels to blame for the stalling engines in 2017 Imprezas? If you ask Subaru, that's what they'll tell you. According to the automaker, while the car is stopped or moving slowly the winterized fuel begins to vaporize in the lines under higher ambient temperatures.
The rear view camera systems in some 2017 Imprezas weren't installed with enough memory, causing the screens to go blank or freeze up. Subaru will recall more than 25,000 of the 2017 Imprezas to fix the issue.
Subaru may want you to feel the freedom, but even they can't escape a Takata recall. By now I'm guessing you've heard about the dangers of Takata airbags, but hlet's go over a quick recap.
Subaru is recalling some turbocharged vehicles from the 2007-2013 model years. Those engines have a secondary air injection pump that can overheat, melt, and catch fire.
Burning through a quart of oil every 2,500 miles is a drag. Blowing up your engine because you pushed it to 2,600 miles is an even bigger drag. So it's no wonder Subaru owners filed a lawsuit in 2014 over worn out piston rings, excessive oil consumption, and the frowns associated with an $8000 repair bill.
Subaru has agreed to settle a lawsuit that says certain cars require a small fortune to keep the engine full of oil. The plaintiffs say there aren't enough dead dinosaurs and other fossil fuels to keep these engines fed.
Over 50,000 Subaru Foresters, XV Crosstreks and Impreza vehicles are subject to a new recall program in Australia for a manufacturing defect in the steering column. It’s not known if these vehicles will be recalled in the U.S. or other global markets.
TorqueNews.com has an update on the Girard Gibbs Law Group class-action suit which accuses Subaru FB engines of burning through too much oil. The update includes a Q&A that might be helpful to owners.
Did you hear about the strange recall Subaru issued for the 2012 Impreza? It involves airbags, metal and phone chargers.
Subaru is recalling the cars after finding what can only be described as a strange cause for the airbag failures. The automaker says the airbag occupant detection system can fail if a front seat passenger uses a cell phone or other device that is plugged into the power outlet.
Subaru's EyeSight has been caught napping on the job. EyeSight is Subaru's advanced collision avoidance system that is always looking ahead and making sure the path is clear. Well, except when it's not. A defective switch that activates the brake lights can fail and that, in turn, tells the pre-collision system to "take five."
An occupant classification system needs to be able to identify any passenger in the front seat --- yes, even the ones that put their feet on your dashboard. That identification is used to determine whether or not to deploy the airbag in a crash.
Well that didn't work. By that I mean Subaru's recall of 660,000 vehicles for rusted brake lines that could cause a sudden loss of braking. Turns out the fix didn't work for almost 200,000 vehicles that will need to be recalled for a second time.
Subaru is recalling 660,000 cars with brake lines that can rust out due to road salt. The recall only affects Subarus sold in cold-weather states ... so basically all of them. This isn't Subaru's first brake line rusting rodeo, either. Full details can be found on our site, but here's a breakdown of what you need to know.
