4. I'm shorter so I'm a bit closer to the wheel than probably most. Make the center console with a sliding top that can extend forward for a better armrest - MANY other cars have this.
This can't be stressed enough. Subaru lost a sale here. I could find no other fault but this critical issue of long-haul comfort. Surprisingly Subaru has withdrawn the option of adding a center console extender that used to be available in 2008. I checked with SOA and their response was that they no longer offer such an option for the 2011..
I hope Subaru realizes this and fixes it in a refresh.

all windows auto up & down
That seems like something easy enough to do without adding any significant cost, unless the three-function switch is many orders of magnitude more expensive!
One other window-related feature that would be absolutely fantastic would be for the driver's door window lock to only lock out the window controls on the other doors. Currently, the window lock cuts off operation for the other doors both from their own switches and from the driver's master switches. So, if the driver wants the other windows controlled, that lock must be disabled (thereby enabling operation from the individual windows). Those without children may not understand the significance of this, but those with children certainly will.
