Hybrid System Limited Warranty
In addition to the warranties outlined in your Warranty & Maintenance Booklet, your vehicle is covered by a SUBARU Hybrid System Warranty for 8 years, or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. This limited warranty covers repairs needed to correct defects in materials or workmanship in the following plug-in hybrid electric vehicle components:
- High voltage battery pack
- Battery control module
- Hydraulic booster
- Onboard charger
- Hybrid system control module
- Power control unit
- Charge cable
- Transmission and electric motor assembly
Lithium-Ion Battery Capacity Loss (if applicable)
For hybrid electric vehicles equipped with a lithium-ion battery, the battery will experience natural and gradual capacity loss over time. This is considered a normal characteristic of the battery similar to wear and tear and will vary depending on use. This gradual capacity loss is not covered by any Subaru warranty.
RUST PERFORATION COVERAGE for all models is 5 years, regardless of mileage. Subject to the exclusions listed in this warranty, defective original body sheet metal panels that are rusted completely through from the inside out (perforated by corrosion) will be repaired or, at the option of Subaru Hawaii or your Authorized SUBARU Retailer, replaced without charge to you for labor and materials. The following items are not covered: (1) rusting of the outside of the underbody (floor 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, or other causes beyond the control of Subaru Hawaii; (6) replacement body sheet metal panels; and (7) other items listed under “What is Not Covered” (later in this section).
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, Subaru Hawaii or your Authorized SUBARU Retailer reserves the right to decide whether painting the repaired or replaced panel to match the original finish is feasible. Subaru Hawaii will not, under any circumstances, pay for painting the entire vehicle solely to match paint color.
Since your vehicle was designed and built to resist corrosion, use of additional rust-inhibiting materials is not necessary and not a requirement for coverage under this warranty. Whether to obtain such additional protection is your decision.
Parts Covered by Other Warranties
These warranties do not cover any parts, such as tires, which are covered by their own separate warranties.
Maintenance and Adjustment Services; Normal Deterioration
These warranties do not cover the cost of parts or labor involved in performing any normal maintenance services. There is also no coverage for normal deterioration or fading of paint, soft trim, cosmetic and appearance items.
Periodic updates to the firmware or software in your vehicle may be made to improve performance or security. Such updates are considered part of normal maintenance.
Damage or Malfunction Due to Improper Repair or Unauthorized Parts or Modifications

Damage or Malfunction Due to Abuse, Neglect, Accident or Fire
These warranties do not cover any part which malfunctions, fails or is damaged due to objects striking the vehicle, road hazards, whether on or off the road, accident, fire, neglect, abuse, or any other cause beyond the control of Subaru Hawaii.
Damage Caused by a Non-Covered Part or Occurrence
These warranties do not cover damage to a covered component directly caused by the failure of a non-covered part, accessory or occurrence.
Damage Caused Due to Use of Vehicle in Competitive Events
These warranties do not cover damage to any component that is the result of operating the vehicle in any competition or racing event.
Damage or Malfunctions Due to Lack of Maintenance or Failure to Follow Instructions

Damage Caused by the Environment
These warranties do not cover damage caused by airborne fallout (which includes but is not limited to chemicals, tree sap, and bird droppings), salt, water, flooding, hail, windstorm, lightning, extreme temperatures, or any other environmental cause.
Repairs by Non-Authorized Subaru Retailers
Except in the case of emergency repairs as previously explained, labor and material expenses for repairs performed at any facility other than that of an Authorized SUBARU Retailer are not covered.
Vehicles Ineligible for Warranty Coverage
The vehicle is not eligible for warranty coverage if the vehicle identification number is altered or cannot be read; if the vehicle has been declared a total loss or sold for salvage purposes; if the vehicle has been dismantled, destroyed, or changed in such a manner that constitutes a material alteration of its original construction; if the odometer mileage has been changed so that mileage cannot be readily determined.
These warranties do not cover any part of the vehicle’s finish which is damaged by adding or applying chemicals other than those approved or recommended by Subaru Hawaii.
These warranties do not cover any part which malfunctions, fails or is damaged due to commercial use of the vehicle, unless this exclusion is expressly waived in writing by Subaru Hawaii.
