Thanks Camp, hope you are right. Pads and rotors are not cheap. Obviously with only 11K it has not been driven that much and in winter I can't get it washed as much as I would like to. But like I said, I have had many new vehicles and they were driven about the same amount as the Subaru. The earliest I ever did brakes on was an 03 Passat but that was at about 5 years and 40K. I will be contacting Subaru soon to find out what they will or won't do.

You're welcome. I wouldn't wait too long, once you get past the 36 mo's not much can be done.

I just had full brakes on my 2013 Outback at 55K, including five Syracuse winters!

I was a mechanic at a Ford dealer for 13 years and brake rotors were covered for being warped. The brake pads would not be warranty, but with only 11,000 miles the pads should be fine. I have a 2019 Crosstrek with 36,500 miles no vibration at at all when braking and not one issue with the car at all

I said before that I haven't had any issues with the car but it did have 4 recalls that were fixed at no charge, none of which had any effect on the vehicles' performance at all.  1. Ignition Coil reprogram 2. PCV Valve Fracturing 3. radio reprograming 4. Brake hose swelling.  I've also never had a vehicle have that many recalls in such a short time of ownership. Still really like the car.

Subaru has been experiencing growing pains. With 94 months in a row of increased sales I'm surprised they haven't had more quality issues than they've actually had. They truly are a good car company that takes care of their customers.

Not that I'm aware of. However, when I drove into NYC I was completely on the defensive side of driving. I'd freak the F out if I had to drive in there everyday. That was crazy shit.
