Default Class Action Lawsuit Settlement 2012-2017(WRX / STI) - Rod Bearing Failures

Forgive me if this was posted elsewhere (recently). Didn't see anything current under Warranty or 2.5L technical.

Seems the class action lawsuit against SOA for engine related failures due to connecting rod bearing or main bearing is almost complete. Final determination is June 5, 2019 .

To qualify you must have bought or leased a MY 2012-2014 Impreza WRX or MY 2012-2017 WRX STI with VINs ending with CG203168 and up for 5 door models, and CG006225 through H9826807 for 4 door models.

If you had an issue, some level of reimbursement is possible, including rental car. You have to submit a claim form.

If you haven't had an issue, your powertrain warranty is automatically extended to 8yrs / 100,000. You don't have to do anything for this.

I'm sure stipulations apply, but this should be a real win for owners who suffered failures, and gives those who have not some additional piece of mind.

More info can be found here:

I received the notice a few weeks ago.

Not modded, no issues, will not opt-out of class-action suit and will accept the extended power-train warranty with the covenants.

Would the 8/100k be for all owners, or just the original?

There is a vin range, you might not be affected.

"vehicle identification number (VIN) ending with CG203168 and up for 5-
door models, and CG006225 through H9826807 for 4-door models"

I have a 2017 sti with vin number right outside the range of the one on this list (H9827XXX). Does anyone know why they capped the range of the VIN to H9826807? Did Subaru identified and corrected the issue for vehicles outside this vin range?

I’m sure they will not reimburse anything if the work was done by yourself.
