Key Updates 

If you own a 2016 Subaru Forester, Legacy, Outback, Impreza, or Crosstrek equipped with STARLINK, and are enrolled with either the Safety Plus or the Safety Plus & Security Plus package, then you automatically receive a monthly Vehicle Health Report that keeps you updated on many of your vehicle’s key operating systems. (Owners of 2017 WRX, Legacy, Outback, and Forester with STARLINK can sign up, too.) This report provides a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation of important vehicle systems.

STARLINK Diagnostic Alerts 

If your Subaru needs attention, STARLINK runs a diagnosis of crucial vehicle systems and will notify you immediately using Diagnostic Alerts. 

  • If one of the warning lights illuminates, STARLINK will send you an email notification within 24 hours of the first occurrence, explaining the issue and how to resolve it. 
  • If the warning light remains illuminated, then the system generates a second and final email notification for additional follow-up. With more serious issues, you’ll have the information you need to bring to an authorized Subaru Technician.
Access your SUBARU STARLINK Health Report through the MySubaru app.
