2012 Impreza Sport

I am a week into my 2013 Impreza Base with CVT ownership, and cant believe I walked out the door with a car w/o cruise. The fact that this car is made WITH Bluetooth standard, but with Cruise not only unavailable, but with NO OEM upgrade option for it is a farce and something Subaru should be actively trying to message to potential Impreza buyers. I feel decieved. Yes, I made a mistake here, but I cant be the only person who assumed that the car had cruise when it clearly has power windows/doors/keyless entry/bluetooth .... And even with that assumption, Subaru should have a clear training program using that missing cruise feature to be the FIRST up-selling point that the salesmen use to upsell to a Premium Trim. Subaru's 'build a car' feature on the website also does not make this clear. The bullet points for features on 'Premium' doesnt include 'Cruise Control' as one of the things you get. It should be the FIRST thing in their list.

Frankly, while I am otherwise very happy with my base Impreza, this is in my opinion, a collection of egregious errors on the part of SUBARU, and with no OEM option for having the feature installed, it shows they don't care to even attempt to fix the errors.
My salesperson didnt tell me. But i planned on getting the bas to save money. First thing I notice was the lack of paddle shifters and then cruise control. Not sure how you missed it.
