Seems like a number of you guys have gotten a lot better info from your calls to SOA. Are you just calling the 1-800-SUBARU3 number?

9 weeks tomorrow.
Best luck I had was emailing SOA. I guess because they aren't trying to get through a stack of calls and can spend a little more time tracking down your car. It took her about 3 days to get back to me but when she did her info was spot on. She told me on a Thursday I should see the car Tuesday. Then the dealer calls the same day saying its coming tomorrow, then it's not here probably Monday, finally showed up on Tuesday. Sounds like the rep i got actually talked to the distributor instead of just looking at what was in the system.

What's your location code?
