Subaru has issued a safety recall to owners of the 2018 Model Year Legacy and Outback. Due to a software programming error, the calculation of the remaining driving distance until the fuel tank is empty may be incorrect. Normally, the dealership at which you purchased your Subaru would assist in correcting the issue. Unfortunately, as stated in the safety recall, there is currently no correction to the software programming error thus making the 2018 Subaru Legacy and/or Outback defective “a lemon”.
Since the solution to the issue has not been achieved, it would be wise to stay vigilant of any new issues that may possibly arise with your fuel management system. Does the vehicle seem to use fuel differently under the same driving conditions? Is your vehicle performing as expected towards the end of the fuel tank? Have you contacted your dealership before the recall and cannot seem to get the assistance needed?
While the manufacturer attempts to correct the programming error, Subaru has reminded owners to be patient. They have suggested a possible remedy may be available by the end of the first quarter in 2019. However, in California, the Tanner Protection Act provides the right of replacement as well as reimbursement under certain circumstances.
