Subaru sold vehicles with faulty windshields, drivers say

Subaru of America Inc. has knowingly sold vehicles with faulty windshields and has failed to repair the defect or reimburse customers, according to a putative class action filed by drivers in California federal court. Lucia Luong, who bought a new 2015 Subaru Outback that she alleges spontaneously suffered a cracked windshield in March, said Subaru has knowingly sold vehicles with windshields that have cracked, chipped or fractured under normal circumstances, and has denied valid warranty claims in an effort to minimize its own costs. “Subaru knew of and concealed the windshield defect that is contained in every class vehicle, along with the attendant dangerous safety problems and associated repair costs, from plaintiff and the other class members both at the time of sale and repair and thereafter,” Luong said in the complaint.
