Creaking sound coming from dashboard since new.
Rear cargo cover squeaks.
Driver's window lift starting to fail.
Rear passenger window lift failed at 18,000 miles.
Two wheels dinged on potholes.
Small pit in the windshield turned into a crack that goes clear across the glass.
Overall, for the money, a reasonably good value. However, be warned that most Subaru dealers treat non-WRX owners like second rate people.
The overall impression I get from this car is that the powertrain and other major systems are of high quality, but that the fasteners, bodywork and trim are of such utter rubbish quality that this car is quite literally going to start falling apart in a few years. For example:
The seat fabrics are already starting to stretch and come loose, the gear knob is becoming discoloured, the carpets are coming loose and the plastic clips holding them in break.
The windshield glass is at the minimum thickness allowable, so expect to be replacing windshields fairly often.
The steel body panels also appear to be rather thin, and in spite of covering up some small nicks in the paint with touch up paint, they are now starting to rust, and some small bubbles are forming around them.
Fuel economy is also not up to par, giving an average of 25.8 MPG. My previous Saturn would average close to 30MPG, even if I drove it like a maniac.
Rims are very fragile. I live in the Northeast, and it is often impossible to avoid potholes in the dark on the motorway. Rims should not dent in low speed impacts with potholes.
I've been very gentle with this car, attending to all maintenance, washing it as often as I can, and trying to keep it nice. I suppose it's been built to a price, and that buying the first year of production of this particular model was a mistake. Nonetheless, their dealer network has been very rude and unpleasant to deal with; servicing costs at the dealer are ridiculously high. I fear that this car may become increasingly expensive over the years, due to the low quality of many of its constituent parts.
