Mine's a nitpick: the automatic climate control turns the inside of my car into a convection oven, even with the temp set at 65. I end up either turning the fan off or click it up one notch above "Auto" to get the right amount of heat.

Did you push the fan speed control button in for two seconds until the light flashes and also for two seconds on the temp button? I didn't know this was how you activate it until I started reading the owner's manual. I previously thought you just turn the knob to auto, but this does not complete the activation until the two buttons are pressed and held.

Nit pic things...Rear window gets extremely dirty, extremely fast unlike the old WRX wagons, and when I look out my side rearveiw mirrors, I have to look through the reflection from the side vent in the dash. Radio aux imput seem to low also.

Might want to have those lights checked out. The only thing that I don't like is the click sound from the front brake calipers, it is normal, checked with two subie dealers and checked it out on the NASIOC forum. Not worried about it, but it is annoying... Oh, and hopefully they come out with a better cover in the hatch, cause the thing rattles way too much. Other then that I am peachy.

the noise which i assume are the calipers releasing when i pull out in the morning, and the rattle of the trunk cover thing when its not pulled out that drives me nuts.

dash clicks and creaks when it's really cold

but that's the contraction of the material due to it being freakin freezing in colorado, nothing more nothing less


doesn't do it when the temp is above freezing

I saw this in someone else's post but I agree with the stereo only being 8 characters and not scrolling. It isn't a huge factor but one that pisses me off when I am riding in my gf car and hers scrolls along.

creeking sounds in the dash are usually the factory stereo. some felt tape fixes that. creeking sounds in the back are the cargo cover. again, felt tape fixes it.

Theirs a ticking noise when driving. coming from the engine. still cant find out wat it is.
are you running PREMIUM fuel? if you run anything below 91 octane, you'll probably get pre-detonation which would sound like TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK and will eventually screw up your engine.

hit the TEXT button -- there are two different TEXT modes for FM radio... one is short (8-16 characters) and one is something like 128 characters and scrolls.

guys, ALL OF THIS STUFF is in the owner's manual...
