suspension spring broke suspension spring broke

I just had the left rear coil spring on my 2015 Forester XT fail at 52250 miles. I don't off-road, or tow, or overload the suspension, or do anything extreme with the car, but still last week the left rear coil spring broke. I called Subaru before having it assessed because I had seen on forums that some people had luck getting Subaru to contribute money toward the repair. Subaru started a claim for me and told me to get it evaluated by a dealership. Dealership confirmed broken coil spring, repair cost $540. Subaru spoke with the dealership directly and agreed to cover the cost of the repair. Parts were in stock and I had my car back the next day. It was really a quite painless process thanks to Subaru. If they hadn't covered the cost my tone would be quite different.

I've heard this is a problem that is quite common. Apparently Subaru is using an inferior product for its springs.
