After being consolidated with another lawsuit, the case was partially dismissed because some of the plaintiffs do not allege their vehicles continued to have problems once Subaru made repairs.
Subaru dead battery problems have caused a lawsuit that alleges 2016-2020 Subaru Outback and 2019-2020 Subaru Ascent SUVs are equipped with batteries that drain and die.
A class-action lawsuit was filed because of battery problems in certain Subaru vehicles because the automaker's decision to install batteries with insufficient capacity to power the vehicle's electrical components when turned off.
Twice my 2020 Subaru Ascent's battery has been dead. It has been driven every day for at least 20-30 minutes. Nothing was left on, or open. There is obviously an elecrical issue draining the battery.
This is the third time I have had to deal with a dead battery for the car. I don't drive it often, and the car runs absolutely fine when the battery is actually working, but the battery dies on its own which leads me to believe that it's somehow draining on its own. There has got to be a recall about this soon.
The battery has drained down twice in the same week. Car is only 6 months old. Nothing plugged in. Very annoying. I had Subaru Roadside Assistance tow it 45 miles to nearest dealer. We will see what happens. Clearly a defect in the 2019 Subaru Outback.
