    Welcome. When the interior rattling is as distinct as the boxer rumble, it's what makes a Subaru a Subaru.

    Honestly, I could care less about my squeeky interior, if you look around a little bit, it seems every single subaru rattles and squeeks. My solution? Nameless performance axleback and the COBB SF intake + my music. With all that going can't hear much besides what I'm paying attention to hear.

    I have a 12 premium w cloth seats. No rattle. Check and make sure everything is buttoned down. Bet u its a loose seat bolt or seat warmer plug. Might want to unbolt the seat, lift it up, move around wiring or tie them down, and bolt it back up.

    I have 2011 WRX and it was doing the same thing, so I went to the dealer and they couldn't find what was wrong with it so all I did was unlocked my back seats and lock it back up good and all the rattling stopped. You may wanna try that if you haven't yet.

    Mine does the same thing. It annoyed me at until I figured out what it was, and now im too lazy to fix it. Mine was a light metallic rattle. What is causing it is two zipper tabs hitting each other. You'll notice there is a seam in the harness cutout in the top of the seat. The two zippers are in the inside top of that seam. When a passenger is sitting in the seat they are putting pressure agaisnt the two so there is not enough space for them to rattle against eachother.

    If that is unclear I can post a pic of the seam.

    I believe the seat noise your hearing is the 'leather' of the seat rubbing up against the plastic siding. (at least i've read of that being an issue.)

    The last 15 years I owned 95 Dodge Avenger, RSX-S, 1995 Altima, 2005 TC Scion, 03 Murano. Currently i owed 06 Honda Odyssey. But My 2012 Base WRX is the worst rattles in all of it, with leas than 17k on it. But I knew before hand the low interior quality + rattles Subaru issues in all its vehicles. I bought for Its AWD, performance and handling. That's what's matters the most.
