What is this lawsuit about?

A class action lawsuit was filed against Subaru of America, Inc. (“SOA”) and Subaru Corporation (“SBR,” and, collectively with SOA, the “Defendants”) alleging that the Settlement Class Vehicles experience a range of technical glitches that cause freezing, non-responsiveness or other malfunctions of the Starlink System. The lawsuit alleges that Defendants have violated certain consumer statutes and breached certain warranties, and it seeks certification of a nationwide class of present and former purchasers and lessees of Settlement Class Vehicles to pursue these claims.

Defendants deny these claims. SOA and SBR maintain that the Settlement Class Vehicles are not defective. Defendants maintain that the Settlement Class Vehicles function(ed) in a proper manner, were properly designed, manufactured, distributed, marketed, advertised, warranted and sold, and that Defendants did not violate any warranties, statutes, or laws. In the instances in which such repairs have been necessary, Defendants maintain that they have provided warranty coverage where appropriate.

What is this lawsuit about?

You are a Settlement Class Member if you are a current or past purchaser or lessee of a 2017 Impreza, 2018 Impreza, 2018 Forester, 2018 Outback, 2018 Legacy, 2018 Crosstrek or a 2018 BRZ vehicle equipped with the Generation 3.0 head unit manufactured by Harman International Industries, Inc. (“Settlement Class Vehicles”), and you purchased your vehicle in the continental United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.

If you received a mailed Notice, then Subaru of America’s records indicate that you are or were a purchaser or lessee of one or more of the above-referenced Settlement Class Vehicles covered under this Settlement.
