I purchased a new 2010 Subaru Outback with a manual transmission in July 2010. On my test drive, the rpms dipped a little at one stop but it didn't stall and didn't seem to indicate a problem. After I purchased it, the first stoplight I came to after driving out of the dealership, it stalled. I drove it around the block (during which time it stalled two more times) and took it back to the dealership. By that time it had warmed up and wouldn't repeat it for the them. It continues to either stall or almost stall, almost always when the engine is cold, the outside temp is high and the air conditioner is on. Today was the first the dealership acknowledged there is a problem (though the tech thought it's a Forester problem) and that Subaru is working on a fix. I purchased a Subaru because they are one of the few auto manufacturers who offer manual transmissions in several cars, but I wish I had read this before I bought!

Bummer, no doubt, but I'm sure they'll figure it out and take care of it. They've stepped up to the plate and fixed much bigger issues than that, and usually when they do they extend the warranty on affected parts.
Hang in there and in a while this will just be a speed bump in a good ownership experience.
