Subaru Legacy and Outback Windshield Settlement

Settlement Structure: Claims Made

Active: Open

Case Summary:

Subaru of America, Inc. is settling a class action alleging that certain 2015 and 2016 Outback and Legacy vehicles have defective windshields that may crack, beginning in the de-icer region. (See the Notice for an illustration of the area.) The Notice claims that compounds used to stick the de-icer to the lower part of the windshield may sometimes create a condition which makes the glass susceptible to cracking after a minor strike to the glass, such as the impact of a stone.
