Subaru Set to Roll Out Next Generation Coupe
The economic downturn and slumping sales posed by the coronavirus pandemic is not stopping Subaru from moving forward with big plans for its next-generation coupe.
The company is set to soon unveil the 2022 BRZ, a redesigned version of the car that the Japanese company has been teasing for years now. BRZ fans are hoping that the new model gets a sleeker look and news bells and whistles while retaining the superior handling capabilities for which the car is known.
“Get ready for more thrills, more rear-wheel-drive fun, more of everything serious drivers love about the BRZ,” Subaru says of the new model on its website. “The all-new 2022 BRZ is completely redesigned to deliver pure sports car exhilaration, and it's almost here.”
Subaru is continuing to keep a tight lid on information about the vehicle, however.
That includes what kind of engine is under the hood. Observers are expecting the company will include some version of Subaru’s 2.4-liter boxer, but that remains to be seen.
Car Defects and Recalls
While Subaru is planning a big rollout for the new BRZ, the company - along with other auto manufacturers - continues to struggle to put cars on the road that are safe.
Subaru announced last year that it was recalling more than 250,000 cars because of a serious defect that the company said could increase the risk of an accident. A faulty engine part could cause oil to seep into parts to the cars’ engines where it should not be, the company said, potentially causing cars to stall suddenly and without warning.
Earlier in the year, the company said it was calling back some 1.3 million cars because their brake lights may not properly illuminate. That could make it harder for others on the road to know when the cars are stopping or slowing, increasing the risk of a rear-end crash.
Legal Rights for California Car Owners
The good news for car owners and lessors in California is that the state’s lemon law provides some important protections when it comes to defective vehicles.
The Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act requires carmakers to perform a variety of repairs on vehicles while they are under warranty. It also requires the company to buy back or replace covered cars that it is unwilling or not able to fix.
A seasoned California lemon law attorney can help you explore your rights to ensure that the car’s manufacturer is made responsible for faulty vehicles. The law forces the manufacturer to pick up the tab for any legal fees you incur.
