The power outlet is broken. Can I get it fixed for free?
Do you mean not working or physically broken? The outlet has a limited current capacity and a fuse to prevent overload. What have you plugged in to the outlet? AFIK it is limited to 10 amps max. Abuse might not be covered. Monster audio amps that take more than 120 watts probably will blow the fuse. Check the fuse.

Sorry, it is not working. I have peeked inside and everything looks fine. It went dead after I plugged in the GPS cable last time. The connector of the GPS cable was damaged when I pulled it out. Now it won't work for anything. The indicator won't light up.

Wonder if the GPS plug caused the damage?
The warranty will cover a part failure, but not if it was physically damaged.
The "adjustment period" covers only the first 12 months, in that time frame they'll even replace windshield wipers.

Depending on why it is not working, it is possible you will have to foot the bill on the power outlet repair. If the cord that was plugged in is faulty, then the car is not to blame on this one. Have you used that cord with anything else? Is there any visible wear/damage on it?

Actually I bought my car last December, so it is still within 12 months. What is the adjustment period? Anything is wrong, they fix it for free? Even some body damage, like scratches and stuff?

Thanks for the link. How do I make a warranty claim? Is there any form that I can download from the website or they have it at the dealer?

Squeeks and rattles, that sort of stuff.
I don't think scratches would be covered.
Basically anything that was made faulty, rather than things that were broken.

Just got off the phone with the subaru customer service, and you are right. The scratches due to outside source are not covered.
