Has anyone been experiencing any of these issues?

Dimming mirror with the homelink is to heavy for the fastener holding it to the windshield. My mirror has fallen twice once while driving and the other while adjusting the mirror. I've taken it in to the dealership to have the fastener and plastic piece holiding the mirror replaced but obviously seems like a design flaw. Spoke to dealership they have had many complaints about this.

Clutch has already had to be replaced only have 28,000 miles on the car. Car started making a rattling noise after 15,000 miles while either holding the clutch or engaging, mechanics tightening heat shields and removed rocks from behind heat shield. Noise still continued they replaced my throw out bearing. Noise came back after talking to the mechanics we both came to conclusion the springs on the actually clutch disc broke off somehow. Spoke to other same year and make subaru owners and they are experiencing the same thing.

Had maybe 2,000 miles on the car and the left turn signal was blinking really fast, went to check the obvious no bulbs were burnt out. Took the car in and some wires were touching which caused the mishap. Now have 30,000 miles on the car and once again started blinking fast, checked the bulbs there were good but low voltage were going to the bulbs. Found the wires that are bent, straightened them out and blinker works fine again. Looks like the battery is stuffed in tight by the wiring which is causing this. Has to be another designed flaw. Spoke to the dealership they too have had many complaints about the same problem.

My question is what to do besides keep taking the car in for what seems like Subaru design flaws?

my clutch started slipping at 10k miles (disc looked like new, pressure plate was weak). replaced it with an exedy stage 1. 10k later the new throwout bearing is making noise and as i let the clutch out or anytime i engine brake, i get a rattling noise. its my daily driver and it has never been launched. i do drive aggressively, but i dont slam it from gear to gear or anything like that. i think these clutches are just junk. my original throw out bearing at 10k felt bone dry and on its way out too.
