Hi all,
We are coming into summer in Northern Australia, and I have noticed the rear air vents are next to useless. There is hardly any air coming out, even when I turn the fan up high, it doesn't change much.
We are having to redirect the front vents to try and reach the kids in the rear.

Anyone else noticed this?

I don't have the same model, but all Subaru cars (most every car actually) will have reduced air flow with a dirty cabin air filter...
Have you checked yours?
Here in the states dealers charge a ridiculous amount to change them ($100 US Plus), and it is very simple to do.
It's easy to find a YouTube video showing you how if you have never done the filter change, it will show you how.
You can save a lot by buying an aftermarket filter and installing it yourself for about $10.
If you drive on any dirt roads or in dusty conditions, they can get saturated very quickly.
I have to change mine every 3 to 6 months for the dirt road reason.
You might want to see if that helps.
