- Really hate how i have to hit the key fob once for driver door, and twice for the rest of the doors, and another for the trunk. The beeping each time is really annoying.
#1 - what's the build date on your car. There was a TSB for TCM/ECU relfash/updates. One off which addressed excessive engine braking. It still will experience it down hills, but if its excessive this may help. These were implemented in Sept & Dec 2011 so if your build date is early enough you may want to request them.
#2 - if you've hit unlock twice on your key fob, that has unlocked ALL doors including the trunk/hatch gate. Once unlocks driver door only, twice all doors, & the trunk button only unlocks the trunk/hatch gate. But you shouldn't need to press it 3 times to do that. I have the hatch, so maybe the 4 door is different. But I have disabled that chirp on mine.
I took delivery in 12/2011 as well & am right around 13K miles as well. Similar MPG & 2 oil changes so far. Had new felt strips installed on the windows for a seal/moisture issue & my drivers side seat back was replaced yesterday for a squeaky seat. Had my windshield replaced but that wasn't a Subaru/warranty issue. Aside from those minor issues I love my car!
