    Dealer up here was surprised of my door rattle issue. He said it has been a problem on the new Forester, but never the Impreza. Either way - they know how to fix it and my rattle will be gone a week from today!

    Rattling in my 2011 STI is insane. Love the car and the bluetooth connection to listen to my iPhone. But any volume causes rattling through the door panels. I was thinking of going to a car stereo place to fix it but if Subaru dealerships do it then I'll go there.

    Very nice!!!

    Also glad to see I am not the only one with that dreaded door rattle. I got a quote for all aftermarket updates for everything except for head unit (which I may still do anyway). It's gonna be a pretty penny but I may just do it.

    I like that particular blue, I don't think any of the pictures I saw on-line before did it any real justice.

    Enjoy the ride.

    My appointment is Wednesday.. They say I am describing the EXACT issue that brings a lot of Forrester's back, so I am hoping this is a quick & easy fix as it should be nothing new.

    The rattle totally ruins the enjoyment of the car - so frustrating.

    Hmmm, maybe I'll make an appointment with my dealer as well. I sure hope they can fix it.

    Update.... Very frustrating.

    I bought the car 2 weeks ago. I traded in my 07, but still owed money on it. The dealer that sold me the STI has yet to pay the remaining loan off on the WRX. They also screwed up the registration papers. So, I am now officially driving and paying for a car that isn't registered while paying for a car the dealer is selling that IS registered.

    I gave them until tomorrow to clean this up, or I drive back (350 miles) to the dealer and give them the STI back and drive away with my WRX.

    Wow...very frustrating to hear how they screwed up the registration.

    My Subaru has the exact same door rattles...interested to hear if anyone has had any luck having the dealer fix it.

    My 2011 wrx also has the rattles - most noticeably coming from the passenger door panel area. This is even in low volume situations. I would also like to hear what kind of results you guys are getting from your dealers.

    Thanks!

    Well... So I took the STI to the local dealer who assured me they understand the problem and know how to fix it. 2 hours of waiting, and they tell me its ready. I specifically ask "Did you hear the rattle, fix the rattle, then listen to make sure the rattle is gone?" The answer was "Yes, ofcourse. However, we broke a piece of the door trim when fixing the rattle so you will have to come back when that part comes in."

    Dissapointed, but hopeful the car sounds better, I go to the car, turn the stereo on, and the rattle is 10x WORSE!!!! I dragged the tech to the car, and his response was "oh, usually what I did works."

    I am loosing faith in New England Subaru dealers...

    To top it all off - they asked me to make sure I gave them a high score on their customer satisfaction survey.
