Wirtz Law Advises Subaru Owners to Consider Opting Out of Fuel Pump Settlement

Subaru Class Action Lawsuit Opt-Out

San Diego, California – Wirtz Law, a San Diego, California-based lemon law firm, is advising Subaru owners to carefully consider their options before the deadline to opt-out of the Denso fuel pump class action settlement. Founding lemon law attorney Richard Wirtz suggests that opting out of the settlement could potentially yield higher compensation for affected Subaru vehicle owners through direct legal action.

The class action lawsuit, which involves defective fuel pumps manufactured by Denso and installed in Subaru vehicles, has left many owners contemplating whether to accept the settlement terms or pursue individual claims. According to Wirtz, the decision to stay in the class action or opt-out warrants serious consideration.

“If you don’t opt out of a class action settlement, you’re often waiving your right to pursue a claim directly against the manufacturer, Wirtz said. “A standalone claim, in many cases, can result in more compensation for the vehicle owner.”

Wirtz Law’s recent article, “Why Is It a Good Idea To Opt-Out Of Class Actions?” outlines several reasons why some individuals may choose to opt-out of class action lawsuits. The firm emphasizes that ethical, moral, or ideological objections to the case can be significant deciding factors. Vehicle owners might also hesitate to compromise their relationship with the defendant, especially if they are business clients of the defendant.

The most compelling reason, however, is often financial. “The Class Action does not provide for payment of all your damages,” Wirtz explained. “Potential damages and recovery under California lemon law are often greater than an extended warranty or other benefits offered in a class action settlement.” Notably, California’s lemon law also allows for civil penalties that can amount to up to two times an owner’s actual damages.

Wirtz Law is offering free consultations to Subaru owners considering opting out of the class action settlement against Subaru. The firm aims to provide clarity and individualized advice to help vehicle owners make informed decisions about their legal options. Subaru owners be in the class if they own a Subaru model year 2013 to 2019, including:

  • Subaru Outback
  • Subaru Impreza
  • Subaru Legacy
  • Subaru Ascent
  • Subaru Forester
  • Subaru Crosstrek
  • Subaru WRX
  • Subaru BRZ

With the settlement’s opt-out deadline approaching, Wirtz Law underscores the importance of understanding all available avenues for compensation. The firm’s commitment to advocating for the rights of consumers makes it a valuable resource for those affected by the defective fuel pumps.

While class action settlements can offer broad solutions, Wirtz Law’s stance is clear: individual claims may often provide a more favorable outcome for vehicle owners facing significant issues with their Subaru vehicles.
