A Statement of Claim was issued in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Hamilton on April 11, 2016, claiming declaratory relief, general damages for breach of contract, breach of warranty, unjust enrichment, constructive trust, and breach of the Sale of Goods Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. S.1 relating to excess oil consumption in Subaru vehicles.

The action is brought under the Class Proceedings Act, 1992, on behalf of all individuals who reside in Canada, except those who reside in Quebec, who own a Subaru 2011-2014 Forester, 2013 Legacy, 2013 Outback, 2012-2013 Impreza and 2013 XV Crosstrek (the “Class Vehicles”).

The Statement of Claim, which contains allegations which have yet to be proven in Court, alleges that Subaru Limited, SACL Auto Canada Ltd. and Subaru Canada Inc. (collectively “Subaru”) designed, manufactured, marketed, sold, leased and distributed the Class Vehicles knowing that the vehicles were defective and would burn excessive oil during normal use.

We are compiling a database of individuals who own a Class Vehicle which is experiencing excessive oil consumption.
