On March 31, 2021, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey largely denied Subaru’s motion to dismiss Plaintiffs’ Consolidated Class Action Complaint. The lawsuit relates to alleged defects that can cause repeated battery drain problems in certain Subaru Vehicles, including 2015-2020 Subaru Outback and 2019-2020 Subaru Ascent vehicles, among others.
Although the Court dismissed some claims, it found Plaintiffs stated numerous viable claims under state consumer protection statutes, common law, and for breaches of warranty. The Court’s decision allows this case to proceed into discovery. The Court’s decision on the motion to dismiss is available here.
