On July 16, 2014, Chimicles & Tikellis filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Subaru owners and lessees with vehicles prone to engine oil consumption. The complaint alleges that certain Subaru models may contain defective piston rings in the engine causing excessive oil consumption. This design defect may be denied warranty coverage by the manufacturer and result in some owners having to pay for costly repairs to the engine. Subaru may even relay to customers that the excessive oil consumption is considered normal. The below Subaru models are subjects of the class action:
- 2011-2014 Subaru Forester 2.5L
- 2013 Legacy 2.5L
- 2013 Outback 2.5L
- 2012-2013 Impreza 2.0L
- 2013 XV Crosstek 2.0L
