Subaru to Settle Lawsuit Re: Faulty 2012-2017 Subaru WRX, WRX STI Engine
The lawsuits argued that the 2.5-liter turbocharged EJ engine used in the 2 012-2017 WRX and STI is prone to premature failure of the connecting rod be arings and main bearings.
The company was allegedly aware of the problems but did not issue a recall or inform customers, according to Car Complaints.
Subaru has agreed to pay for repairs and extend the warranty period to eigh t years or 100,000 miles, whatever comes sooner. The company will also comp ensate owners for lost value at the time of sale, up to $4,000 per vehicle.

In the lawsuit, the complainants alleged that Subaru knew of the defects wi th the engine’s rotating assemblies, specifically its connecting ro d bearings, main bearings, and the channels of engine lubrication, yet fail ed to tell its customers about it. Based on the lawsuit, metal debris withi n the engine oil hampers the oil’s ability to protect the engine? ??s components, resulting in excessive contact between the engine beari ngs that culminates with the engine failing prematurely.
