Hello all. I've been lurking since I bought my Beca in Nov 2007. This is my first Subie and I'm generally pleased with the '07 7 pax model I chose. The only thing that irritates me is the 2nd row seat rattles and intermittent dashboard creaks. I know there is a SOA TSB that addresses this issue in the '08 and '09's and have asked my dealer to apply a similar remedy to quieten the excessive rattling. Prior to the Subaru, I drove Isuzu Troopers. I loved the tank-like build quality of the Japanese built second generation models. I had my last one for 14 years before selling it to another Trooper owner. In the almost 22 months I've owned the Beca, I've put on 16,000 miles. Until this year, I didn't drive it very much as I have another car I preferred to drive in the warmer months. However, I've needed the extra space of the Beca this summer and have added about 8,000 miles since April. I've heard some complaints about the A/C, but I've found that it's almost too cold for my wife and I so we always moderate it a bit, usually setting it at 71°-72°. I'm still showing a lot of tread on my first set of stock tires as we don't spend winter in North America and consequently don't drive between Dec-Apr. Winter tires are mandatory here in Québec, but our driving habits have saved us from that added expense. BTW, I've over-inflated my tires to about 45 PSI to get better gas mileage. It appears to be working. At 16,000 miles, I've averaged 20.27 MPG with approximately 40% city driving and 60% highway. The ride quality does suffer the more PSI's you apply, so I would not recommend this for everyone. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the many members who have posted valuable information on this forum. Sharing experiences makes us better qualified to expect resolutions to common problems and defects before they become difficult to resolve. Thanks to all!
