I called SOA again this week and the guy I talked to said my car had a "location code" but that he didn't know what the code meant. I asked if that meant it was still in Japan or what, he replied that "it could mean it's shipped on the way here." He then told me, same as the last call I made, that they get information from the dealer, which has it first.
Seems like a number of you guys have gotten a lot better info from your calls to SOA. Are you just calling the 1-800-SUBARU3 number?
9 weeks tomorrow.
