Got a pic?This has been bothering me. The 'IMPREZA' nameplate on the right rear of my 5-door dips very slightly down on the left. I did not notice it during the pre-purchase inspection. Who would? I have tried to ignore it, but I can't. Lately, I find myself looking at every Subaru to see if they exhibit the same problem. Actually, on about one out of 20 Impreza's and Crosstrek's I see the exact same problem. Although, today I saw a Crosstrek with the nameplate dipping down to the right. One would think that the factory uses a template to place these things correctly. I think someone on the assembly line is just 'eyeballing' them.
Unless someone has a better idea, I am planning to use a hair dryer and some dental floss to gently remove the nameplate. Then I will clean the car surface with alcohol, apply some new 3M permanent double sided tape and reapply the nameplate properly.
Maybe my wife is right. Maybe I am too picky about stuff like this. Does your 'IMPREZA' line up properly?
