Dash rattle. Rattle in drivers door. Seat rattle and pop.
Wind noise as many experience in 2015 and now 2016 models. Also cold drafts and breezes in driver side compartment. Dealer loath to recognize this over 2 months in winter.
Wind noise at highway speed. Breezes in driver's compartment. Dealer applied the wind noise kit to both front doors. Breezes all but disappeared and car stays warm and comfortable for driver. Wind noise worse, but road noise reduced.
Wind noise on passenger door was fixed per Tech Service Bulletin in spring. Noise returned worse than before. Run channel replaced. Noise reduced a great deal. Starting to increase again. Wind noise on driver door has increased since repair in spring according to Tech Service Bulletin. Noise when driver window is initially lowered that started with this wind noise fix was found not to be "abnormal."
Wind noise TSBs applied to both front doors. 61099AL01B for the second time to driver side. 61099AL00B for third time to passenger side. I had written a letter to the president of Subaru of America telling him how miserable driving the car on the highway was. I was contacted by a "Team Leader Customer Retailer Services." A Field Service Engineer drove my car and with some instrumentation determined that the noise level was only 2 decibels higher than a 2015 model. That was basically an admission that there is wind noise and SOA has some notion of what is "normal." And ridiculous! The application of the TSBs was the decision of the the dealer Customer Service Manager. I have nothing bad to say about the car, but the wind noise.
Constant wind noise from drivers window. TSB was performed to replace window weather stripping. Right rear rocker panel trim not fitting flush against right rear door.
Replaced seals around side windows, windshield. Dealer was very helpful.

The console pocket in front of the shifter was starting to come apart and excessive rattling was being heard in the interior. The dealership disassembled the dash, reinstalled/reattached these pieces and had me on my way within an hour.

The passenger seat squeaks when taking turns or going over bumps. The dealer lubed the seat
Dust sheild hitting brake rotor over certain bumps. Noticed when I first received car but couldn't get to dealer right away. Fixed for free in minutes
Sunroof leaked really bad down on my wife and I when we went into the car wash. After taking it to the dealer they said that "it's in the Manual" that you can't take the car into a high pressure wash, so good luck washing your new Legacy.
Chrome door trim on drivers door was replaced. Plastic end cap on top corner came off and was sharp. Replaced the whole trim piece as its one unit.
Passenger side lower seat surround broken and replacement electrical switch knob missing. Possibly related to earlier switch problem. Replaced under warranty.

Rattle coming from Glovebox. 2 screws were loose. They were tightened. The right rear original equipment mug flap came loose and eventually fell off. The dealer first refused to replace unless I paid for part.(approx $70)I eventually convinced dealer part falling off not my fault..should be covered by warranty Replaced right rear mud flap and 2 mounting clips which had fallen off the car. They were ordered on the last visit.
Rattle in glovebox remains, especially when weather is cool. Also asked dealer to check buzzing in passenger door caused by speaker. Dealer says glovebox and passenger door interior panel were disassembled and insulation/padding applied.
Glovebox rattle had grown worse since last repair attempt. This time repair was successful. Latch screw was found to be loose. Cause of minor buzz in passenger door could not be repaired. It remains, however it is minor.
The center armrest cover detached. Dealer repaired, and stated that it was just a few loose screws.
Steering wheel creaks, one rattle from the dashboard, and one rattle from passenger side door. Could not replicate at dealer.

Exterior trim moulding out of place/loose. Sent to a glass shop where the moulding was glued to the body.
Trim panels on the fuel and trunk release come loose each time one of the knobs are pulled causing the knobs to stay up until pushed back down. New knobs and trim panels are on order. Rattle at base of A-pillar...the corner where dash meets windshield on drivers side. Dealer could not duplicate the problem because it mostly occurs when the outside temperature is cool or in the morning.
Fuel and trunk release knobs replaced. Trim panel under knobs replaced. Note: Knobs no longer stick when pulled; but trim panel still does not stay snapped in place due to carpet being too tight in this area.
Mud/splash deflectors located in front of the 2 rear wheels had become loose and eventually fell off the car. Both flaps and mounting hardware were replaced.
Exterior trim on windshield came off. Reattached with glue.
Clicking popping noise from driver seat when turning to the left. Was told that's just how it is.

Three of four screws for dealer installed genuine Subaru arm rest fell out. Dealer replaced part opposed to replacing lost screws.
sunroof gasket fell off and I re-glued with 3M weather strip glue (good stuff). Lots of glue left over for next job. All the drains at the base of the windshield ( under the cowl ) and at the bottom of the front fenders were plugged with pine needles and mud. Had to take it all apart, removed cowl and fender liner, in order to wash it all out. Took a day. sunroof gasket fell off and I re-glued with 3M weather strip glue ( good stuff).

Driver's seat leather and padding wore through, creating a hole in the leather. Neither us or the dealership could figure out why this happened and so they replaced the leather seat cover (including foam seatback).
Rattle originating from emergency brake handle assy.
Dashboard rattle near driver's side A pillar
I stuck some foam weatherstripping in the dashboard/A-pillar joint to muffle the rattle. Consensus among owners at legacygt.com is that anyone who makes the dealer remove the dashboard ends up with more rattles than the original. I don't consider it fixed
Sunroof rattle Surface rust appeared after 2 years on a small spot and was repainted.
Paint is cracking. Car has never been in an accident. Went to the dealer to complain, was told that "this is a common issue on 2005-2008 subarus. Was told that nothing can be done, except paint the car, which I would have to pay 5k for!
Sunroof and power lock system died. Subaru at first did not want to pay for the repairs. After I threatened a law suit, the dealership put in a new sunroof motor and seals along with replacing the power door modulator. Their cost >$3400.
Had to replace the housing of the front lights - technical control in Belgium (yearly event) refused them. Had become a little dirty inside (and lens had tiny scars), which lead to light which was too diffuse (cannot be opened, had to be replaced).
