I think that's true. My car will be one year old on 6/22, and I'm not seeing a GTP quote yet either.
Anyone thinking of using Subaru's Guaranteed Trade-in Program should read this page very carefully:
There are many ways in which Subaru can disqualify a car. For example:
"Vehicles that have been altered from their original design specification in any manner. These alterations include, but are not limited to exhaust system, turbo or engine components, tire, wheel, suspension, powertrain performance, and aftermarket accessory installations, etc."
Not that I'm planning to GTP my car, but right there it would be disqualified unless I undo my head unit replacement, rear sway bar, short shifter, leather steering wheel wrap and leather shift knob, and so on. Not a big deal, I guess, but annoying just the same.
Regardless, I'm confident I could get more $$$ for my car doing a private sale than GTP through Subaru. They know how to ensure their own profits, at my expense. No thanks.
