We are currently instructed that certain Australian Subaru models have an excessive oil consumption. From our research the affected FB engines are the 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines in the 2011-2014 Subaru Forester, Legacy, Outback, and Impreza models.
Chamberlains is currently seeking expressions of interest for participation in a class action from those affected customers as you may have rights to reimbursement against Subaru Australia for amongst other things:
- Vehicle repairs
- Oil purchases
- Potential rental car costs
Most car manufacturers considers approximately 0.5 litres of burned oil every 1000 km to be acceptable. The reported 2011-2014 models have had far more excessive consumption.
It is imperative that the car registered in the expression of interest has been serviced appropriately during its lifespan to be eligible for the class action.
If you own a Subaru falling within the previous stated description of models and have an issue with excessive oil consumption, register your interest in this Class Action against Subaru Australia.
