Subaru Facing Defective Automotive Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Santa Clara, CA: A defective automotive class action lawsuit has been filed in California against Subaru, alleging certain of its vehicles contain a design defect making those vehicles unsafe for drivers and passengers.

Filed by Kathleen O'Neill of Pismo Beach, California, individually and for all others similarly situated, against Subaru of America Inc., the lawsuit asserts that the car maker' 2010 and 2011 Subaru Outback vehicles contain a design and/or manufacturing defect that causes the exterior lighting bulbs to fail prematurely and frequently.

Further, this alleged defect, in addition to the associated safety issues, results in vehicle owners paying more to replace the exterior bulbs.

The complaint alleges breach of implied warranty, violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, unjust enrichment, and violations of California's Consumer Legal Remedies Act and its Unfair Competition Law.

O'Neill and others in the class are represented by attorneys Jordan L. Lurie, Robert K. Friedl, Tarek H. Zohdy, Cody R. Padgett and Karen L. Wallace of Capstone Law APC in Los Angeles. The case is US District Court for the Central District of California Western Division Case number 2:16-CV-02774-R-KS.
