Don't get me wrong I love the car. I'll just have to take t apart and find the loose wires or plastic myself... Or bring it in but they always can never find the problem.

You could always turn the stereo up to drown out the rattle. You don't want to know the amount of rattles my 2000 Nissan frontier had.

I do that, but I'm a bit of a noob at manual transmissions so i need to listen to the engine when getting the car moving or else I find myself at 2k-2.5k RPMs...

If it doesn't affect drivability/performance/safety then it's not a defect. It's a feature!

Do a trackday. You are in Cali and Cali has a ton of tracks. Hone your manual transmission skills there. You'll sort that out in a day, flat.

It's hard to tell without truly flat roads but it seems like my steering wheel has been mounted so that it is slightly crooked to the right when the wheels are pointing straight. It is pretty slight, but I'm 90% sure that it's not straight. I will probably have the dealer look at it when I have time... not really urgent right now. Anybody else or just me?

Don't know if this is a defect yet because it only happened once. Yesterday I was in a parking lot and I pressed in the clutch and put the car in 1st. I started pressing the gas pedal and the car wouldn't move. I thought I had forgotten to release the parking brake but it was down. I pressed the gas again and the revs climbed but the car still felt like it was stuck. I released the clutch and started over again. This time the car moved forward. It was on flat ground but I'm thinking maybe the hill stopper feature engaged and got stuck.

Mine would do this when in my parking lot at work. I just turned hill assist off which most likely was the issue because it does not do it anymore.

A couple times when I push the button to start the car, it takes longer than usual for the engine to start, seems like a good 5 seconds or so, maybe more. Once I thought the car wasn't going to start but it eventually did. Anyone else experience this?

I'm at 7k miles now, only defect I can really think of is the silly gas door and that the bluetooth cuts in and out constantly. Tried re-syncing and different phones but it's all the same. Other than that, the paint seems to be pretty horrible and either I have extremely bad luck or the windshield is pretty flimsy. 3x rock chips in it already... My previous civic from 2005-2014 had many hits but no chips/cracks.

You can activate/deactivate the Hill start assist system according to the following procedure.

NOTE
If you make an error when performing any steps in the following procedure, place the ignition switch in the “LOCK”/“OFF” position once and then start over again.

To deactivate
1. Park your vehicle in a flat and safe location and apply the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK”/“OFF” position.
3. Restart the engine.
4. Confirm the following items.
(1) The Brake system warning light illuminates.
(2) The Vehicle Dynamics Control warning light turns off.
(3) The Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light turns off.
(4) The ABS warning light turns off. Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF switch
5. Press the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF switch and hold it until the Vehicle
Dynamics Control OFF indicator light “ ” on the combination meter illuminates for several seconds and then turns off.
6. Within 5 seconds after the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF indicator light

Also 6 & 7 don't wait as long as it suggest, release and quickly push again.

Remember idling and starting differences could be the results of DI car... not necessarily a defect. You just might not be use to it.

I found this workaround for the BT pairing issue that worked for my old Razr Maxx. It was prompting me to confirm the request on the phone every time I started the car.
  1. Delete the pairing info from the car and phone
  2. Clear the bluetooth cache on the phone
  3. Re-pair the phone and the car and sync address book (I did this through the head unit)
  4. Shut off the car and then change the name of your phone's in the bluetooth settings
  5. Re-pair again with the car but do not sync the address book
After I did this it worked with the original address book sync and doesn't prompt me anymore to confirm.

1) Gas door which can be fixed with theTSB 09-57-14. For anyone that has this problem, just tell your dealer there's a service bulletin post for it and give them the item code.

2) Interior rattles. Bought some stuff today and as soon as I can get the door panels off, I should be able to solve this issue with a relatively cheap solution. I'll keep you posted.

3) Foot on peddle problem. I have a hard time not pressing on the right peddle and make it go fast so it's killing my gas mileage. Slow drivers suck too because they make me pass them.

Other than the few little issues which can and will be resolved soon, this car is a blast to drive and I'm loving every minute of it! The addition of a sub helped immensely as well.

My steering wheel was also off to the right after a couple hundred miles. Check your rear toe.

Steering wheel being off to the right means the wheel needs to be center and locked into place and the front toe needs to be adjusted to the new angle.

You get a one time free alignment from Subaru, take it in.

The last few days i have experienced 1st gear pop out during deceleration going down hill. Happened about 10 times so far (live in San Francisco) so can be very hilly. Trying to figure out exactly when it happens so i can replicate for the dealer (I am a service adviser at a dealership myself "not subaru" and know they have to verify it.) It seems as if i'm in first and accelerating moderately downhill up till about 3.5k RPM then let go of the gas and let the car engine break eventually the car will make a noticeable bang and the car pops out of first. We shall see what happens.

Had my first potential defect today. I filled my tank up with some good old 93 and the gauge was reading between full and 3/4. I stopped at a different station to see if the last one messed up (I'm in NJ so I can't pump my own gas, only complaint about moving here ) and sure enough, the pump stopped right away with the gauge still in the same spot. After getting home I turned the car completely off, turned it back on to auxillary mode and its showing plump full like it should, anyone else have this? Hoping it never does that again obviously lol

My Mazda 6 has done this for years in 2nd gear (started after the warranty expired). Accelerating a bit and lifting off the throttle suddenly down a hill would be the best way to reproduce the problem for me too, but occasionally it would happen after downshifting for a turn and accelerating after the apex. I got into the habit of just holding onto the gear shifter when in 2nd, and it would never pop if I was holding it.

A couple years ago the clutch wore out on my Mazda, and I was hoping replacing the clutch would fix it. Unfortunately the problem remained. My theory is it is an issue in the transmission gearbox itself (which kind of makes sense, since it doesn't happen for every gear, just a single gear).

One more thing to note. Try to rest your hand lightly on the shifter while in 1st going down a hill. On mine, I could feel the shifter move a little bit toward Neutral, almost like it was being tug in that direction from the linkage underneath. It wouldn't do that in any other gear though... It might be enough "proof" for the dealer that a problem exists (and whether or not it's been fixed after they replace something) if they can't actually get it to fully pop out of gear.
