I wouldn't say plenty, I'd say a very few. You have to remember that the people in this forum are a very small sample of all those out there who took delivery of their car already & most people use these to complain about issues. There are so many more out there who love their cars & have had no issues who don't seek out a forum to announce it to the world. A lot of us started out sharing info as we all ordered in August & September & were trying to gauge when we'd get our cars. So that forum has been a HUGE one, but I could literally give you counts on who's had which issues & there's less than 5 people who've had any given issue and probably only 5 or 6 issues total that anyone's had. Keeping in mind those are all the people who took ownership of one of the very first cars off the production line. I myself have had 3 very minor & not mechanical issues that have resolved themselves & I LOVE my car!

Yes, people have had mech issues, but the degree of the issue wasnt horrible. Also, Subaru even recalled 1 issue about brakes being too soft or mushy before they were brought to dealers.

Went in yesterday with the intention of ordering a gray Sport Limited, but a truck with a gray Limited hatch pulled up. Very long story short, I'm glad I saw it because I ordered that instead.

Anywho, I ordered a bunch of accessories and one of the ones I had were the side window deflectors. I love them and put them on all of my cars. I did however take them off of the order because I thought they looked alittle big in the brochure and couldn't get a good idea of how they looked. Does anyone have them installed yet and if you do, would you please post a pic?

Can't wait to post a pic of the car when I get it(2nd or 3rd week of April I was told). I'm 17 hours into the order and the wait is already killing me.

In case anyone was wondering, that car on the carrier was a sold unit that was ordered. Also, I ordered because I got about $1,300 worth of accessories on the car.

I'd been sold on an Impreza for a while and wasn't too picky about the color. I definitely knew I wanted a hatch, light interior and heated leather which limited me one model and four colors. A Sport Limited in Black, White, Blue/Silver, or Green/Silver. At the time, I would have been happy with any of those but black.

Now, I'm REALLY happy with the blue/silver. I'm thinking about calling her Misty

I have an 09 sage green/silver combo. I like how the color doesnt compete over the other, and both are somewhat neutral colors. I noticed the Blue/slue combo looks more authentic to subaru, but it just looks like the colors compete over each other. However, each one has its own opinions.

Very carfully. It's very very difficult to reach, especially for me since i have fat hands. just reach as far behind the fender as you can and you'll find it.

And then there is the USB port.

I carry around a handful of thumb drives full of MP3 and if you have the yoga limberness to reach the port while driving you still have to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey / Blind Man's Bluff to find the thing. May the force be with you if you happen to have anything in the console compartment like coupons or a flashlight or anything else; the port is at the bottom, covered up by everything.

I know! Because my Bluetooth is paired for my phone the USB won't charge it unless unpaired so I have a separate car charger. So when I have to plug in my car charger in the console I fish around blindly with my finger looking for the hole... HA! & hope that I don't pull a shoulder muscle while doing it.

I agree that it isn't the best place for a USB port. It makes sense if you have a dedicated ipod you want kept out of sight. It makes the center console unusable if you have a thumb drive in the port. I'm currently using it for receipts, haha. I am loving the fact that I bought a $13 thumb drive and now have 16 gigs of music and podcasts though.

Where did you have it done? What type of tint did you go with? I live in NC and will have mine done too, trying to decide who and what to use.

Interesting, I wonder if that was the percentage they put on, or is it the total light percentage with the built in factory tint?
