Cool First 10K

Not sure if any other high mileage road warriors yet...but will roll over 10,000 miles on my Limited HB on the way home tonight almost 4 months to the day of driving it off the dealers lot......very happy with the car, not a single problem, two oil changes at the dealer.....great service department, and rolling along......averaging 31 MPG per tank now.....

Limited, HB, CVT, PZEV, Pkg #1, Nav/Moonroof, Splash Guards and a few other accessories.......

well looks like two of us with road warriors then....Im averaging between 525-650 miles a week...depending on its weekend use......so averaging out to be 30K a year roughly........Im actually at 9978 at the moment......but the ride home will change that as noted......

hope yours has been as pleasant as mine so far....I know there are a few folks with some major issues...both mechanical and with dealerships.......

I will rollover 10K by the end of this next week as well. I drive a manual HB sport limited.
Have had great service department from dealer and nothing has been wrong with my car besides a little water in the windows...not like the others though.

Im averaging 30mpg but I also carry about 300 extra pounds in the back every where I go.

Love this car and everyone that rides with me always says that the seats are very comfortable.

All the seats in my car are comfortable...
Except mine. This busted spring or whatever it is, is driving me crazy.

Just changed my oil today at 22,130 miles. I've had the car since March. Changed it four times myself. No complaints so far. Using Mobil 1 oil and filter. Air filter purchased from dealership. I did have a rock crack my windshield about 3 weeks ago. Dealer only windshield that will not arrive until Sept. 23. So be careful. Haha

Well, that's quite a different class of car, isn't it?

Congratulations!

I have a 2013 I picked up in August and I have 8500 miles. Third car but first brand new car and its like a game I play to not put miles on the thing. Luckily I sell cars so most of the time I drive something else but I will be sad when I break 10k soon.

Why will you be sad to break 10k? Subarus are built to drive and to get you wherever you need to go, right? Driving the car is good!

About to hit 12k here, nothing but nightmares with my dealer, Grand Prix Subaru. The service department is the problem, not the salesmen. Brought up problems to them, and they either said they couldn't be replicated, or they fixed them, and in reality made them worse.
Speaker grills vibrating? Sure, we secured them (in reality they're worse now).
Seat squeaking? Sure, we lubed the seat track. Not that? Well it's not squeaking for us.
Ground clearance issues? Possibly defective struts? Nah, we won't call you back :P

Anyway, aside from things like that, I love the car. Washed and waxed my car today, and vacuumed, love my clean subie.

Looking forward to tints/aftermarket HU/1" Lift kit! As long as the car lasts

I'm at around 1750 now, but I've only had the car three weeks. I'll be at 10k in no time.

DansTheMan, tell me about your ground clearance issues. Is your car riding lower than other Imprezas you see on the road?

I personally think there's a problem with my struts, but I can't be sure, as I'm not a technician, nor do I have another impreza to compare mine to.

All that I know is that no one's even taken a good look at my car, even after i've brought it in to my dealer multiple times.

If they say my struts and everything else looks good i'll shut up and be on my merry way, but nobody's even done that yet, so.

If the dealership you bought the car from isn't giving you a warm, fuzzy feeling, then try again at a different Subaru dealership.

But what makes you think there's a problem with the struts? What's the symptom? Poor ride? Poor handling?

Mostly how bumps and road imperfections are handled; the struts respond strangely.

And i'm attempting to work out the issue with SOA, they said that the regional manager will be contacting the dealership soon. Not about my issue, but the fact that they won't answer my phone calls, and they aren't even responding to SOA's messages.

Please try to describe what you mean when you say that "the struts respond strangely".
