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 owners say their vehicles are surging forward when trying to shift into PARK, even with a foot firmly on the brake pedal. The automaker continues to blame drivers for the incidents, propmting a second class-action lawsuit to be filed in a matter of months.
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.
Subaru vehicles are accelerating on their own and the automaker's claim that owners are to blame isn't going over well. A new class-action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of owners with cars that may have unintended acceleration problems. This includes the 2012-2018 Forester, 2015-2019 Legacy, and 2015-2019 Outback.
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.
"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.
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.
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).
