RUST PERFORATION COVERAGE 

Defective Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement sheet metal body panels that are rusted completely through from the inside out (perforated by corrosion) will be repaired or, at the option of SOA or an authorized Subaru retailer, replaced under this warranty. To obtain warranty coverage, the vehicle must be brought to an authorized Subaru retailer located anywhere in the United States as soon as reasonably possible after the discovery of rust perforation. The following items are not covered: (1) rusting of the outside of the underbody (oor pan) or any other part of the vehicle except body panels; (2) rust resulting from alteration of any body panels; (3) rust as a result of damage to paint caused by normal road hazards such as stones or other debris; (4) body panel rust caused by abuse, lack of maintenance, or damage to the vehicle; (5) rust caused by sand, mud, salt, submergence of a body panel in water, exposure to industrial fallout, chemical fallout, tree sap, hail, ooding or other causes beyond the control of SOA; and (6) other items listed under “What Is Not Covered.” In general, Rust Perforation Coverage applies to perforation due to corrosion only. Perforation is a rust through condition, such as an actual hole in a sheet metal panel. Cosmetic or surface corrosion, such as that caused by stone chips or scratches in the paint, is not covered under this warranty. In addition, SOA or the Subaru retailer reserves the right to decide whether painting the repaired or replaced panel to match the original nish is feasible. SOA will not, under any circumstances, pay for painting the entire vehicle solely to match paint color.

OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO RETAIN PROOF OF PURCHASE AND MAINTENANCE

It is the owner’s responsibility to retain documents that show the date of purchase and, if applicable, installation of the part or accessory, and to present those documents upon request at the time a warranty claim is made. Failure to present proof-of-purchase documents upon request may result in denial of a warranty claim. If applicable, it is also the owner’s responsibility to retain proof that all inspection and maintenance services are performed when recommended and to check uid levels and tire pressure regularly. 

HOW TO GET WARRANTY SERVICE 

A defective Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Part or Accessory will be repaired, or at the option of SOA or an authorized Subaru retailer, replaced using new or remanufactured parts without charge to the owner for materials. In addition, if the part or accessory was originally installed by an authorized Subaru retailer, the owner will not be charged for labor. Warranty claims must be made as soon as reasonably possible after a defect is discovered, but before the end of warranty coverage for the particular part. It is recommended that warranty claims be made at the Subaru retailer that sold the part or accessory, although warranty claims can be presented to any authorized Subaru retailer located anywhere in the United States. When a warranty repair or replacement is needed, the vehicle (or, if preferred, just the part or accessory) must be brought to an authorized Subaru retailer’s place of business during normal business hours. Within one year after the installation of an Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Part or Accessory, SOA will pay the cost of having the vehicle towed to the nearest authorized Subaru retailer if the vehicle cannot be driven due to a defect covered by this warranty, but only if the defective part or accessory was originally installed in/on the vehicle by an authorized Subaru retailer. In all cases, a reasonable time must be allowed for warranty repairs to be completed after the part or accessory is received by the retailer. 

WARNING CONCERNING NON-AUTHORIZED GENUINE SUBARU REPLACEMENT PARTS & ACCESSORIES 

Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Parts & Accessories are new or remanufactured items that have been approved, recommended, and supplied by SOA for installation on the vehicle. Some retailers sell both Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Parts & Accessories, as well as other parts and accessories. This warranty applies only to Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Parts & Accessories. It does not apply to any other parts or accessories.

This warranty does not cover any part or accessory that malfunctions, fails or is damaged due to: (1) objects striking the vehicle or any road hazards, whether on or off the road; (2) collision, accident, abuse, neglect, misuse, or any other causes beyond the control of SOA; (3) the failure either to perform any normal maintenance on or follow any operating instructions for the part or accessory; (4) the failure to follow the operating instructions for the vehicle set forth in the Owner’s Manual or failure to follow the schedule of recommended inspection and maintenance for the vehicle set forth in the Warranty & Maintenance Booklet; (5) improper installation, adjustment or repair of the vehicle or improper adjustment, repair or installation of the part or accessory; (6) alterations made by changing, adding to or removing any items from the vehicle or from the part or accessory; (7) installation in or attachment to the vehicle of accessories or equipment not approved or recommended by SOA; (8) commercial use of the vehicle, unless this exclusion is expressly waived in writing by SOA; (9) use of the vehicle in any race or competitive event; (10) airborne fallout including, but not limited to, chemicals, tree sap, bird droppings; salt, hail, windstorm, ooding, water, lightning, extreme temperatures, or any other environmental cause; (11) failure to follow recommendations on fuel use contained in the Owner’s Manual; (12) if the vehicle has been dismantled or changed in such a manner that constitutes a material alteration of its original construction; (13) damage to a covered part directly caused by the failure of a non-covered part or occurrence of event, and; (14) damage caused by adding or applying chemicals other than those approved or recommended by SOA.

GENERAL 

SOA, through an authorized Subaru retailer, will repair or replace under this warranty Authorized Genuine Subaru Replacement Parts & Accessories that malfunction or fail during the warranty period as a result of a manufacturing defect. When a defective part or accessory is originally installed by an authorized Subaru retailer, that servicing Subaru retailer will also replace, without charge, all lubricants and uids that become contaminated or lost as a result of making any such repairs. However, SOA has no control over damage that occurs to the part or accessory caused by such things as objects striking the vehicle, collision, misuse, improper installation, or lack of maintenance. Therefore, damage to a part or accessory for any reason that occurs as a result of the way the vehicle is operated or treated is not covered under this warranty. SOA, its distributors, and authorized Subaru retailers reserve the right to make changes in parts and accessories sold by them at any time without incurring any obligation to make the same or similar changes in parts and accessories previously sold by them. 

THIS WARRANTY IS THE ONLY EXPRESS WARRANTY BY SOA ON AUTHORIZED GENUINE SUBARU REPLACEMENT PARTS & ACCESSORIES PURCHASED AFTER DELIVERY OF THE VEHICLE IN WHICH THEY ARE INSTALLED. 

SOA, its distributors, and authorized Subaru retailers do not authorize any person to assume for any of them any obligations or liabilities greater than or different from those set forth in this warranty. This warranty gives the owner specific rights, and the owner may also have other rights which vary from state to state. 

ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE APPLICABLE TO THE PART OR ACCESSORY IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE PERIOD OF THIS WARRANTY. 

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts; therefore, the above limitation may not apply. 

SOA, ITS DISTRIBUTORS, AND AUTHORIZED SUBARU RETAILERS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OF USE OF THE VEHICLE; FOR ANY ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION; LODGING, FOOD OR TELEPHONE EXPENSES; FOR ANY DAMAGE TO GOODS, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOSS OF TIME OR INCONVENIENCE; OR FOR ANY OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. 

Some states do not allow the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damages; therefore, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply.
