Subaru called the possible date of resumption of production at the main plantJanuary 24, 2019
Car assembly complex Subaru, located in the Japanese prefecture Gunma, will resume work in the coming days. This was said in a statement. The automaker did not name the exact date, but clarified that this would happen no earlier than January 28th.
“We can say with confidence that in the near future the situation with the defective node will be resolved, and those cars where the problematic part will be found will be sent back for revision,” – the Subaru said.
Subaru production in Gunme is the largest car assembly complex of the company. It accounts for 60% of the company’s car production, which is also exported.
Subaru stopped the production and shipment of cars at the enterprise in Gunme on January 16. This happened after the discovery of defective parts from one of the suppliers. This is a serious defect in the electric power steering, which could adversely affect the driving process. Problems may have arisen in car models XV, Impreza and Forester, produced from the end of December 2018, the company said. According to her, no potentially problematic car was transferred to the final buyer.
