Subaru Lawsuits

Automaker Subaru may be facing thousands of lawsuits filed by automobile owners whose vehicle were manufactured with Denso fuel pumps. The fuel pumps may be prone to failure which can lead to engine stoppage or failure and may pose a threat of serious injury the failure causes a serious accident. Subaru owners may also have paid extra for the vehicles which were marketed as safe and reliable and may suffer financial loss as a result of fuel pump failures.

People whose Subaru cars have experienced fuel pump issues or owners of Subaru automobiles from model years 2013 to 2019 may be eligible for compensation and should seek legal advice.

What is the Subaru Lawsuit About?

A large number of complaints have been reported about fuel pump failure in Subaru automobiles. The company issued a recall for four of its models from the 2019 production year, Outback, Impreza, Legacy and Ascent. It appears however, that other vehicles with the same fuel pump issues were not included in the recalls. Complaints have also been lodged for the 2019 Subaru forester and for other models from years 2013 through 2018.

Subaru has built its reputation on “safety and reliability” and charges a premium for their cars that will reportedly maintain the value, remaining safe and dependable for many years.  A fuel pump that fails may place the vehicle occupants at risk of injury and death.

The vehicle owner may also have paid more for the reputation and may suffer financial loss when the vehicle loses value due to fraudulent claims of safety by the manufacturer.

Lawsuit claims state that Subaru had known about the faulty fuel pumps as early as 2013 but continued to sell Subaru Outback, Impreza, Legacy, Ascent and Forester models manufactured with DENSO fuel pumps anyway. This action may have resulted in harm and threat of harm to owners, operators and passengers of Subaru automobiles.

Is there a Subaru Recall?

Subaru issued a recall for more than 188,000 vehicles manufactured with DENSO fuel pumps, but other models may be affected by the fuel pump issue.

Subaru’s recall only included the 2019 models of the Subaru Outback, Impreza, Legacy and Ascent. Though there have been a number of complaints involving other Subaru vehicles which were manufactured with the DENSO pump, they were not included in the recall.

What Vehicles Are Affected?

Reports of complaints from the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA), warranty claims and records, non-warranty repair records and Subaru company records indicate that the Denso fuel pump failures may affect models and years that have not been recalled.

Denso fuel pump failures have been reported in Subaru models ranging from 2013 model year to 2019 model year and affected Subaru models may include:

  • Subaru Outback
  • Subaru Impreza
  • Subaru Legacy
  • Subaru Ascent
  • Subaru Forester
