Known for its boxer engine layout in vehicles, Subaru is the automotive manufacturing division of the Subaru Corporation. The company’s headquarters are in Shibuya, Japan.

Subaru competes with Honda, Mazda, and Toyota in the American market.

Common Defects with Subaru Vehicles

Subaru vehicles are commonly known for their dependability and reliability. However, they have been known to manufacture some lemons. While these defects don’t necessarily indicate that your Subaru is a lemon, they are common in this brand:

  • Transmission issues
  • Defective airbags
  • Faulty fuel pumps
  • Weak windshields
  • Electrical issues
  • Soy-based wire coatings that attract rodents
  • Cracking engine oil pipes
  • A faulty ignition switch
  • Corrosion in the brake lines
  • Unintended acceleration

Is Your Subaru a Lemon?

There are both federal and California lemon laws that provide protection to vehicle owners who have bought or leased a new or used Subaru vehicle. Suppose your Subaru has had several repair attempts that began while it was still under warranty. In that case, it might qualify as a lemon. If your Subaru vehicle has been out of service for an extended period while still under the manufacturer’s warranty, it might be a lemon.

To be a lemon, the problems with your Subaru must substantially impair the vehicle’s safety, use, or value. This point frequently leads to a substantial difference of opinion between the manufacturer and the vehicle’s owner. What you, as a vehicle owner, might consider a substantial problem, the manufacturer might simply label it as an annoyance or an inconvenience. This is why it’s imperative to have an experienced lemon law attorney on your side who appreciates your concerns and will fight the manufacturer to prove your concerns are significant and not simply an annoyance.

What to Do If Your Subaru is a Lemon

You could be entitled to several protections under the law if your Subaru is genuinely a lemon. However, there are several steps you should take to protect yourself. First, make sure you take your vehicle to an authorized Subaru repair shop or dealership. Next, tell them about your concerns and the issues you are experiencing. Ensure they detail this in the repair invoice. Then, request a copy of your repair invoice and keep it in a file with other documents about maintenance or repairs you have had on your Subaru. Finally, and most importantly, reach out to the Law Office of Michael Humphries as soon as possible.
