Interesting. My 2012 had some tranny work too. It was grinding from 1st to 2nd. The initial reaction from the dealer was that it was abused but once they got it apart they said there were no signs and that there was a manufacturing defect in the syncro. They ended up replacing the syncro pack as well as 2nd and 3rd gear. 3rd gear was discolored on my car... they could not explain it and it was functioning normally but they replaced it anyways. They also took pictures of the inside of my trans to send to Subaru. They were able to email me the pictures. I can post em up if anyone is interested. I would request your pictures.
