There are several aspects of the Genuine Subaru Accessories rear seat DVD entertainment system that set it apart from non-Subaru, aftermarket accessories. One of the most important to remember is that the system was designed and tested specifically for Legacy and Outback models by Subaru. By “testing,” we refer not only to the quality testing that ensures proper fit with the electrical, audio, and seating systems in the car, but also for safety in crash tests as well.
The DVD players and screens are mounted securely around the posts that hold the restraints to the seatbacks. Both DVD players and screens in the head restraints are designed to remain in place and avoid creating a safety hazard in a crash. The system is a seamless part of the vehicle, built to original Subaru engineering standards.
Certified labs and Subaru have tested the seats per regulatory requirement, to make sure that the head restraints function properly in maintaining head impact and whiplash protection. This crash testing was performed with the system aboard to ensure that all of the Subaru Legacy and Outback crash test ratings were maintained.
All seat components work effectively as intended – including the reclining seatback feature, as well as the front seat passenger headrest adjustment function and occupant protection. This system was engineered to be an integral part of the Subaru safety environment for all of the occupants.
The system’s integrated design offers excellent reliability for an electronic feature in a demanding automotive environment. The Genuine Subaru Accessories rear seat DVD entertainment system is backed by a 3-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty when installed at time of vehicle sale. When installed after the initial vehicle sale, the rear seat DVD entertainment system is covered by the remaining 3-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty on the vehicle, or a one-year, unlimited mileage warranty, whichever one is longer.
