had a similar issue with a non-subaru car but i tend to believe power windows are more of universal in design. if you do have power windows.

mine was getting scratched from the inside by the window regulator mechanism. have you or anyone else tried prying the door panels open to investigate? because of the very slim clearance between the door and the window i'm not sure if there's a way not to open it up. check for any protruding metals too. good luck!

if it s 1" or so wide area that is usually caused by the felt bumper inside the door assembly that the window runs up against. They tend to get oil/grease on them and then collect dirt and dust , witch eventually starts to etch the glass.

Pull the door card off and clean the felt bumpers .....Simple Green or something more aggressive would be break clean or rubbing alcohol
