Subaru Headlights Replaced For Free On Some 2010-2012 Subaru Legacy and Outbacks!

If you own a 2010-2012 Subaru Outback or Legacy Subaru is offering to replace the Headlights free of charge for 10 years from the date of purchase.

Subaru will also reimburse the cost of prior replaced bulbs for affected vehicles as well. If you have an affected Subaru Vehicle you should have by now received a letter in the mail, in case you have not.

You can call 1-800 Subaru 3 for more information, be sure to have you VIN # ready when you call to see if your car is affected.  If you have an affected car and have had us replace your Headlight bulbs in the past and would like Subaru to reimburse you please email us and we will be happy to email you copies of your receipts and you must do this by November of 2016.

I will add to please be on guard when going in to have the burned out bulbs replaced for free, this is an opportune time to be upsold something you really don’t need on your Subaru.


Thanks for Reading

    The extended warranty is all well and good but low beam bulbs is only a part of their problem!

    I have never had more bulb failures with a vehicle than I have with my 2011 Legacy sedan… I have actually lost count and it’s not just the low beams. I guessing low beams I’m at about 6 failures in 69,000 miles. High beams, side markers and daytime running lights have all been an issue. Right now I have a day time running light, a low beam and a high beam out… all were new bulbs last year. My mechanic had to tear the bumper off to replace the bulbs so given the price of the bulbs vs the labor to change them we decided it was best to do them all. It almost seems as though replacing all front lights should be added to the annual maintenance guidelines. I love my car aside from the light issue and the cheap quality leather seats but due to the light issues and Subaru’s refusal to admit and stand behind the problem I will be switching back to Honda.

      Hi Joy,

      I am sorry you have had that experience, we have had just the opposite in our 2012 Subaru Outback, having still not replaced a Bulb, I do often remind my wife about not leaving the head light switch on however.

    At walkers Renton Subaru right now. They will only replace lights that are out. I replaced ours with a after market ( not the one you recommended unfortunately). But it is to dim to be safe. They won’t replace the bulb. Called Subaru America and they are going to take care of it as a one time only good deal. In the future I could bring it back as bulbs burn out, but I will order the ones you recommend and do them myself. While a pain 2 hours at the stealership is also a pain. Wish I lived closer to you. Might use you guys if anything major comes up. Thanks a bunch.

    Last Subaru for us maybe we will buy an old used outback loved our 1998 until it was t boned the week after we had the engine rebuilt….. New ones just don’t cut the mustard.

    I have two subaru’s, an 2011 Outback and a 2013 Legacy. I too have experienced a number of headlight burnouts on both vehicles, the 2013 has more, but it has twice the mileage as the 2011.
    The 2011 is covered by the recall for 10 years, so I don’t worry about that one anymore (just the time lost at the dealership)
    The 2013 is not covered, but after several calls to Subaru of America, they did finally conceed and replaced at no cost and they warranty these for a year. It seems that you have to be persistent and they will finally do something for you.
    All in all I am very happy with my Subaru’s and I plan on buying another one in the fall
