2008 and newer Subies have it. I've used it a few times and it does take a bit of getting used to. You don't have to do anything to make it work, just be on an incline and start to roll backwards. The only thing I don't like is how it makes the car feel like its "stuck", almost like you rolled backwards into the thickest molasses ever. My car seems to take quite a bit of accelerator to roll out of hill assist. Can be kinda spooky if your in a line of cars on a hill. I prefer the e-brake method myself.
