Default 2017 Impreza - Squeaky seat at 8k miles

Anyone else's driver's seat start creaking? I'm new to Subaru so I'm not sure if this is a common quirk or not. Seat was dead silent until 8,000 miles. It's not super loud, but it's really annoying in a brand new car.

Take it to your dealer, they'll be able to help you out.


That being said, my drivers seat in my 2012 was awful, and Subaru finally released a TSB for the seat which in the end didn't resolve my issue. I ended up buying a pair of 2017 STi seats and they've been a lot better.

Good to know it's a known issue, makes it more likely that they know how to fix it. Between that and infotainment software revision 3, I suppose I shall make a service appointment. Thanks!

I don't think mine made any noise but the outside bolster spring on my driver seat broke after about 30k and wore a hole in the seat cover.

Same with mine, and I also broke one of the metal supports in the seat back as well.

It took me 3 tries going to the dealer for them to fix the seat squeak initially when it happened. Unreal.

Happy with my STi seats though!
