As the saying goes, don't fix it if it isn't broken...

Brought my 18' to the dealership and had them flash the radio firmware since the system is overall laggy - also my XM stations sometimes don't update with the information. I doubt anything was going to change since we all know the radio pretty much sucks but I was going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Later that day, I come to find out the firmware update bricked my radio now all that works is FM. AM / XM / bluetooth all don't work. Dealership said they were on the phone with subaru all day and eventually subaru said F it, get a new radio. So now I'm waiting a week or 2 for a new radio.

I know everyone is all about getting the firmware updated, but you might want to think twice. I'm lucky the dealer did it!
