a bolt didn't get tightened, or may've backed out. Far from "falling apart".

I would just tighten it down.

Also, welcome to the forum, I know you're new, but don't dodge the language filter, it's against the rules.

Welcome, this must be your first new car. Welcome to the world of mass production. It happens.

It looks like a bracket bolt. I would tighten it down and go about your business.

It's not the end of the world, but it is unacceptable IMO.

At the very least, SOA should be made aware of this.

I agree call Subaru of America. However this is a common occurrence in mass produced products. Most of these companies use some form of lean manufacturing and pointing out things of this nature may help them prevent that problem in the future.
