My wife had another incident of our brand new Impreza not wanting to start. Gotta say thats pretty irritating.
She did the key to "ON" thing, waited for the gauges to stop waving and then cranked it over. .....or tried to. This is with a warmed up car and enough miles and long trips to have the battery all charged up. (I checked the terminals and they are tight).

We are going to complain to the dealer, but since its sporadic, we will just get the "can't duplicate" brush off, I am sure.

Starting reliably is something I have always taken for granted on a new car. I haven't had that problem in any car since my mid 70's Toyota Corona(yes Corona) that I bought well used. This is pretty disappointing in our first Subaru.(after giving up on boring Toyotas and recently less reliable Honda's)

Other than that and not even being able to hit within 25% of the EPA gas mileage ratings(ANY of the ratings), we do love this car.
