Free Subaru Headlight Replacement!

2010-2012-legacy-outback-headlampIf you own a 2010-2012 Subaru Outback or Legacy you will be pleased to hear that Subaru has just issued extended warranty coverage on the low  beam headlight bulb extending to 10 years from the date of purchase.

Many of you may have received a letter from Subaru explaining this but if not you may still be covered. The letter states that the extended coverage applies to 2010-2012 Legacy through Aug 8, 2011 production and Outback through Aug 22,2011 production date. It’s coverage extends for 10 years from the purchase date of the vehicle regardless of mileage. If your headlights are OK there is no action needed. It is not a recall. The letter also stated that if you had to pay to have one of the headlights replaced in the past, that you may qualify for reimbursement if you can provide an invoice and proof of payment. To get reimbursement for any previously installed bulbs, you must submit your information by November 17, 2016 This is a great development considering how often some of the headlights were burning out as well as how hard they are to replace compared to prior Subarus.   If you have any questions for Subaru on how to submit a claim call 1-855-384-8926 and have your vehicle VIN # ready.

    Thank you for this info, was not looking forward to trying a DIY on the left headlamp after struggling with the right one not too long ago. We contacted local dealer & scheduled replacement for Monday under this warranty.

    Do you know the number of this extended warranty notice?

    Does this notice also apply to vehicles sold in Canada?

    Thanks!

    I just discovered the Subaru extended low beam warranty on your site. No letter no nothing! Two years ago we drove Five (5) hours in the dark with only day time running lights and fog lights! I really like the vehicle (2012) outback, but the poor customer service and constantly changing headlight bulbs, where you just about have to strip the vehicle down to the frame is most discouraging! I also changed quite a few of the little 194 bulbs.

    Hi Gary, Glad to hear they extended it. I think they listened to their customers because now (on the 2015 Subarus and newer) you can changed them from underhood again.

    Take care,
