Subaru is a Japanese automaker. Subaru was founded in 1953 and is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Subaru is Japanese for the Pleiades star group, which provided inspiration for the starry logo. Subaru’s manufacturing plant in Lafayette, Indiana is the first auto manufacturing plant to receive zero-landfill status, meaning nothing from the process goes into a landfill.
Subaru's most reported problem on RepairPal is associated with the catalytic converter on some Subaru Forester models.
