Bob,

I actually emailed SoA about the towing, and they told me the following about the sedans--their hitch receiver won't clear the bumper (cover) on the Sedans, but they do on the wagons since the bumper design is slightly different.

etrailer.com lists a hitch that will fit the Sedan body style, and they suggest a longer receiver to extend the ball out and away from the car.

When I emailed them, they mentioned that you *may* have to trim the underside of the bumper cover to get everything to mount, but you shouldn't notice it (unless you routinely roll your car or go to shows and put mirrors under it ).




Very interesting, indeed. Sounds like some Subie engineer dropped the ball on the hitch receiver design (or is it the bumper design?). Even more interesting is that Subaru has had two (now three) years to correct this, and they haven't done it!
